Sun Salutation

Look up eyes

see the sunrise

the sky begs eyes,

look up,

look up.

A shock of cloud

echoes the first ray of morning light

and like a woman changing gowns,

the sky tries the burgundy,

then the salmon, then the gold,

and there’s a slip of blue peeking through.

 Creatures awaken

doing what You set them to do,

sparrows fly,

squirrels skulk,

woodpeckers peck,

 gulls cry

 and poets write.

Still the clouds ride on, ride on

begging eyes look up,

look up, eyes.

A blog that begins with a post about the sunrise.  That seems right.

For Recuerda Mi Corazon Haiku My Heart and Carpe Diem where the prompt is ‘fire.’

  3. The sunrise marks the beginning not just of a new day but also affecting all others. You’ve done well to indicate the beginning activities of creatures all vying for the sun. Nicely Wabi!

  4. What a delight for this morning … very nice Haiku … and I like the continuation with a longer piece … so aptly put:
    like a woman changing gowns,
    the sky tries the burgundy,
    then the salmon, then the gold,
    and there’s a slip of blue peeking through.

    Thank you for sharing, and for your recent visit!!

  6. The sunrise, a new beginning every day. The miracle of life. I thank Creator for the light of day, another day, this new day. Wonderful words spoken, written. A good place to start, the beginning.

  7. As a writer who also is an artist, I love the visual impact of the following sequences…
    creative choice of words that excite my sense of vision:
    “like a woman changing gowns,
    the sky tries the burgundy,
    then the salmon, then the gold,
    and there’s a slip of blue peeking through.
    Creatures awaken
    doing what You set them to do,….
    squirrels skulk,(I love the word “skulk”)
    ….and poets write.”
