Sleepy Sunrise


With the lips of a sleepy lover,

The sun kisses the ocean to wakefulness,

Warming the swells as they rush to meet the shore,

Magenta and gold against the soft sand,

The foaming sea embraces the dawn.


Ocracoke Island has a way of bringing out the romance in a simple walk on the beach. The sunrises and sunsets on that remote North Carolina barrier island are as dazzling as on Maui or any other island paradise. The naked and unspoiled beauty of nature can still be found there, and many a poet is inspired while standing on those sandy shores.
