SUNRISE OVER THE OCEAN by Lee Durmaj of Australia
SUNRISE OVER THE OCEAN
To a special moment ~
Encased forever in a memory.
I awaken from my sleep
To find the smell of lavender
Coming through my open window,
I look out to see the sun rise,
It is ascending from the ocean
With beams of light guiding it
Lifting it higher and higher,
I catch my breath!
The beauty is overpowering
It is almost spiritual,
Indescribable feeling overcomes me
I am touched by this majestic scene.
I stand there watching,
A cool breeze passes,
It makes me tremble,
And powerful emotions stir deep within,
It is like I stepped into divine scenery ~
For one moment I am lost in eternity.
I stroll outside, it is beckoning me ~
To enjoy this view in all its beauty,
I feel the warmth from the sun touching me,
Inviting me to enjoy the serenity that revolves around me.
I look out to the ocean as far as the eye can see,
Waves bobbing up and down like music in a theme,
I see boats sailing in the distant breeze,
A ship is anchored far out at sea,
There is magic in this picture,
To be assured a painters dream.
