I’m not sure when I made writing of dawn a regular practice. I just started and since then, continued as a writing challenge. Interesting to note that today’s writing included “night” before the dawn.
Writing about the same subject every day has built my powers of description and wordsmithing in ways I can’t even quantify. Since I get bored easily, I challenge myself to “see the sunrise differently” every day. It would be such a cop out to constantly write the same dull words over and over.
Sandpaper clouds stretch
Slowly slice through night's darkness
Sun reflects gold light
This prompt has decided it: I am going to start writing of dusk as a daily practice as well.
Word Count - 118 without bonus. With bonus haiku = 169
Bonus sunrise haiku for you:
pull shoulder blanket tighter
dawn whispers hello
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
crisp air meanders
east to west to east again
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Cool on the front porch
six thirty, Samuel showers
new school year today
