A Day Begins - Poem by Roy Storey

Sitting on a balcony
over looking the city
gray lifeless, out to sea
the first rays of light.
Cut across the water
lighting the out lines
of the building pink
turning red to gold
light
as a day begins.

    I like your descriptions - they really catch the feeling, a little like 'The fog comes in on little cat feet..', but I forgot who wrote it.. (Report)Reply
