Looking back to sunrise on Mount Teide, a few lines to see how they fit.

Horizon Lines

Horizon Lines


A thin blue line reaches out from side to side
breaking the blackness of the horizon.
Quick time colour, the blue follows the curved earth,
changes through the faintest of orange and creeps into the sky.
The outlines of the island appear and the suns crisp circle
edges out from behind a planet.  Enlarging, 
rising from its hiding place in the night,
sunrise.  The world on a trajectory
while we leave the mountain,
to let the day walk by.
