‘twas dark at break of dawn;
with just a hint of light
a faint glow, at the edge
of the dark frothy sea
the sun started as a red ball
rising to end the night
shooting brilliant rays
as far as one can see…
 
then it rose above the water
gaining brilliance
the rays getting stronger
illuminating the sky
the black sea turned indigo;
waves appeared to dance
to welcome the new day;
the blessings from on high.
 
as the sun climbed to the heavens
it hid behind the clouds;
and for a moment the world
lost its life-giving rays…
but the ray’s reflections
wowed the awe-struck crowds!
and the cumulus of many colors
never cease to amaze…
 
soon the sun rose half-way
up the sky, now cerulean,
the clouds turned white,
fluffy, streaky, willowy
the sea now in lighter shades,
from indigo to cyan
the day’s beauty on display,
for all prayerful eyes to see…
 
the birds started to fly
in the stiff breeze
and the coconut trees
swayed in harmony
we stood there watching,
our spirits serene, at peace
it’s nature’s majesty,
it’s our Maker’s symphony…

At a recent family reunion at a beach resort, my siblings and I, nephews and nieces, all woke up whilst still dark, to watch the sunrise - to take photos and videos, and to pay homage to one of nature's wonders...

Another nice sonnet! This inspired me! Sunsets are beautiful, and you must have been on a very lovely beach somewhere. The only thing I can compare it with are my memories of sunsets in Hawaii.

Actually this is not a sonnet. The poem I was referring to is titled "Sunrise, Sunset"

Yes wow this was beautiful and like your other comments one has to ask where you sitting right there when you wrote it because I felt as if I was .. That's such an amazing feat to me .. I know that's lesson I could learn from you descriptive writing .. I've always trying to be more descriptive in sight and not just emotion and this poem puts both together wonderfully

As I was reading I was wondering if you were sitting on the beach observing all of this. Then you said It . Such a beautiful description, so beautifully worded.

Few people can witness in full. Puting it in verse is something else. Nice poem!
