Meet me at quarter to five am... by 

July 5, 2013, Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA at 5:11am: 3 minutes before sunrise
(low tide: view large)

Nikkon D90-Nikkor 18-200mm lens, f/8, exposure time 1/60 sec,
ISO – 200, focal length 31mm, max aperturre 4, no flash

I usually write poetry when I’m inspired and I was inspired

Meet me at quarter to five am

We will walk at low tide
Collect sea treasures
And our feet will get damp
We’ll watch seagulls
Scoop up tiny sea creatures
And the beach combers
Gathering their own finds

As the dawn slowly brightens
We’ll watch the sunrise in awe
And witness the miracle of life
God’s creation in living color
We will hear the sound
Of the tide coming in
The roar of the waves
Crashing on the shore

When we return
To our meeting place
Filled with memories
Of a special morning
We will both wish
Those moments
Of a precious time
Would never end!
