MORNING SUNRISE: A Haibun

Not a beachside view, but the only picture I had of a perfect sunrise.

Not a beachside view, but the only picture I had of a perfect sunrise.

A tangerine hue
red ball hanging in the sky
pelicans flying.

Never having gone to see the waters, the only perfect morning I can dream of is opening my eyes to the sunrise above the ocean and catching every moment as it happens. Sitting on the beach collecting seashells off the shore, I would watch the sun rise from the sea as I sit on the cool sand. With a reddish hue in the sky and a pink glow on my cheeks, I would watch it with my eyes wide open till I can’t anymore.

Sunrise at the beach
arms wide open to embrace
morning I dream of.
