five a.m. oil

every morning i see the oranged
ripples and glisten that the rising

sun oils across the waking ocean
, i take a double breath and gasp

in wonder at Her gift, and i thank
whoever it was that granted me

this life, for this pleasure, and this
simply beautiful five a.m. moment

  1. Very nice – I love the orange and oils. And can I just say that you have the best name for a blog – I can hear Hal – (the deranged computer) in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 Space Odyssey saying out loud – ‘Breathe Noah’ in that slow voice. I’m on the beach but no way am I getting up at that God forsaken hour for a run (maybe to see the sunrise).
