A Simple Sunrise



 Glowing orange ball

slowly introduces itself to the horizon

Sea mist fills the air

from crashing salty waves.


Stormy clouds give way

to a clear blue sky,

Outgoing tide

wipes the shore clean

of footprints and debris.


A new day is breaking,

new dreams,

new hopes,

new goals,

new plans.

He wonders what he’ll do today,

as he stares at the calendar photo

from his prison cot.
