Poem #6 from Prompt #6 ” Sunrise” by Ingrid Exner Half Marathon 2020

I rise in


Humidity and heat

hang heavy in thick air.

Clothes stick and

I rush out and gulp

fresh morning air.

Light summer breezes

carry me to



Pre-dawn Darkness-






Tern calls overhead-

screaming Morning.

White Light marks horizon

separating dark water

from Sky.

Inhale freshness-

Smell of Dew!

Horizon line shakes as

Water- Sky lighten.

Fiery reds and yellows

blaze onto horizon-moving up Sky

as Morning moves in and speaks through the Sun.

Shimmering glory sparkles on water.

Sky radiates Gold!

    1. Thanks Stef! It is hard to decide which poem to edit and submit. I like this one too. It fills me with a great sense of peace and also I can identify with the universality aspect…I am just wondering about space in the anthology and because of that, I may choose to submit the Recipe for Jumping For Joy…just to save space. I think we get to submit two…maybe?
