It seems the world is still asleep, but I know the sun will start to rise at any moment waking everyone up. I step outside into the cockpit of the boat, stand on the lazarette and wait. Even though I’ve watched a thousand sunrises, I’m excited to see what this mornings will bring.
There it is,
just starting to peak over the horizon, casting a deep purple glow across the water. The sky is starting to change colors. Blues with just a touch of orange start to appear. It’s coming. As the sun rises a little higher, a warm red emerges under the deep purple sky. And as each moment passes, the colors intensify and the water reflects the colors back into the world. And then it happens.
An explosion across the horizon.
Bright orange, warm reds, and burgundy cover the sky. As the sun rises higher, shades of yellow start to make their way thru, with spears of white, silver and gray light shooting from morning sun. I can feel the warmth on my face and smile. Another day has begun. I’m always amazed at the colors that Mother Nature presents. She is my greatest inspiration.
