Get Up

See the sunrise with its purple haze 

As I so often do

Countless times I’ve failed 

To capture it on film to show to you

Words are insufficient: 

Resplendent fulgent blazing hues

Inept to describe the 

Sun’s divine ascension through

The horizon 

Bursts of iridescent luminosity 

Piercing darkness fleeting magic 

Can’t be captured 

Still…it isn’t hard to see
