Sunrise

you should’ve seen the sun rise this morning

for a moment I couldn’t tell if what I was looking at was the ocean or the sky. the clouds rolled in towards me, the shore above

like waves made of air, foamy with oxygen and an angel’s breath

against the never ending horizon

which stretched itself out to embrace the sun in all its colors of yellow blue and lavender

Your seat would’ve been next to mine, my head on your shoulder

and we’d sit in the comfort of our silence and I’d write in my head all the words I couldn’t yet

say out loud or bring to paper.
