Full Moon at Sunrise

By: Caitlin MacCutcheon


Day breaks on the ocean

the red sun

reflects off the water

we sit and watch the waves form

their sudden rise has been building for miles

the crash,

the sound,

the seagull

morning song


Drunk boys strip naked in the light of the new day

A full moon at sunrise

Whiskey laughter drowns out saltwater roar

It seems to say

“Good Morning world, we have not been to sleep yet.”


The stillness of the morning disturbed

the peaceful innocence of dawn

polluted

but at least it will be a good story to tell.
