Gleaming

Early morning sunrise
on the river smooth and flat
So I had to pause a while
and take a photograph of that
The boats of Shoreham harbour club
Hulls gleaming in the sun
Resplendent here this morning
on a day that’s just begun

I really am a lucky chap
to see this every day
on my daily ride to work
mere words cannot portray
Suffice to say the pleasure
is not lost at all on me
For I’m really very thankful
to live in Shoreham by the sea

Photo – sunrise on the River Adur, Shoreham-by-sea, West Sussex. Looking seaward – Jempics (from the Adur Ferry Bridge)
