Sunrise

Sunrise

In that mystic moment of pre-dawn light 
When shadows linger, remnant of the night 
And birds proclaim the coming dawn 
Rejoicing at a world reborn 
We wait in reverent anticipation 
Of a glorious coronation 

At first a blush, a hint, no more 
With stealthy growth the heavens explore 
Embracing all within its reach 
The sky awash in perfect peach 
That fades again before my eye 
To brilliant blue, no longer shy. 

But bursting forth as is her right 
The rising sun resumes her flight 
Causing instant transformation 
Of grey perception to colour affirmation 
A royal robe for a celestial Queen 
Creating below a vivid scene

I delivered newspapers in my area for a few years, and I witnessed many of these sunrises when I completed my daily runs. Good descriptive write.
