Sleeping Through The Sunrise.

The darkness, with its brilliant stars,
A tiny crescent moon-
As beautiful as this has been
It will be changing soon.
The darkness fades and color starts to stream into the sky,
But few of us are watching,
And I have to wonder why.
This grand display is free of charge,
No need to wait in line.
There’s never been a screen so large
Or better set design.
You have to get up early
But it sure is worth the view.
I’d really be surprised if you have better things to do.
The beauty all around us
Comes in rhythms like a dance,
Each day an opportunity to join or miss your chance
By sleeping through the sunrise
At the very birth of days,
So why not start
To treat your heart
And be there when it plays.



John H. Bidwell

I feel this way about the sunrise... but it rises earlier than I on most days. :~) When I do watch it it never disappoints...

Perfect rhythm and rhyme scheme. (Never used back to back rhy words before, hmmmm. You are absolutely right but I am so morning lazy. Best just to stay up all night and wait for the show.Patrick

John set the course...for the morning of the rising sun...to soar with the eagles, giving hope to those who have not yet learned to fly!...For as You painted this Inspiring picture, I very much wanted to wake up to the golden glow of the sun dancing...Lady Vivian

I always or most always wake up and enjoy the sunrise. Wonderful poem.
Reviewed by Christine Tsen
"Each day an opportunity to join or miss your chance" speaks the truth. We are here and then gone in the blink of an eye, and we can only just do our best to follow that voice within the beat. To love and forgive, to be there for our sunrises and loved ones.
Blessings
