S K Y + S A N D

White Sands
October 23, 2015

dancing in the moonlight, watching shadows
sleeping in a dome of dew, packing up my bedroll and tent for the last time
the thinnest lightening of the horizon
waiting for the sunrise exactly where we danced the sun down but looking east
rise with coffee, surrounded by cool dune sand, distant peaks
watching striated clouds changing all around
the neon orange growing above the mountain’s blue silhouette
the morning light reached the peaks behind us first, painting them pink
we sit, perched on white for our turn to breathe in the dawn
