morning's sunrise

it’s quiet along the beach, just the sound of the waves
lapping onto the shore, seagulls flying all around
i wait anticipating the sunrise and
see just a hint of color starting in the sky and as 
i watch a small dot of orange deepens overhead
right before my eyes, i don’t dare blink 
it all happens so quickly, a small tinge of orange has
dispersed to a larger brighter color that is blinding
yet beautiful and in a matter of minutes it has transformed 
itself through the many stages of a sunrise into a 
bright sunshine glistening over the water 
bringing awe and warmth to the start of a new day 
and to everyone who beholds it 
a feeling of hope, joy and anticipation
of what this new day will bring

    Sorry I meant to type "SCENERY" instead of "senry". Anyways, a beautiful piece.
