Sunrise on the sea

dawn tints white sails in colours

of rainbow mornings.

Wave-rocked, your craft weaves a path

broidered with bright foam flowers.

  1. This is beautiful. I absolutely love the second and third lines: “dawn tints white sails in colours of rainbow mornings”–such a beautiful combination I have never thought of before. Well done. 🙂
