New Lightweight Hoodies. Great for laziness, business, or any other -ness.

A Sense of Sunrise

Texture: Sand.
Dimly visible in the pre-dawn glow.
Bare feet sinking into wet holes.
Seemingly smooth expanse:
Pale, pale, like a kitten’s belly.
Small, hard grains roll underfoot –
Feel.

Sound: Water.
Building, crashing, reaching, sucking.
Constantly shifting darkness.
Gather – rush – retreat… Gather – rush – retreat…
Feathery crests appear, merge, fade.
Gulls chorus the morning –
Listen.

Sight: Sky.
Blues… Pinks… Pastel purple…
Clouds colouring shyly, caught in the moment,
blushing brightly as the sky lightens.
A vision of splendour.
The sun bursts forth –
See?
