What So Few Witness by renaissanceman3 What So Few Witness by renaissanceman3
As the sun was about to rise beneath a scrumptious November sky, I knew it was going to be an indescribable morning. The air was crisp as I perched high above the beach waiting for the sun to emerge over the cloudy horizon. I was almost shaking in anticipation when I heard the approaching drone of a small fishing boat. Damn the timing, I thought ... these mindless fishermen were about to ruin what was sure to be a glorious capture! They trolled ever so slowly, themselves enraptured by the imminent event. Get out of the way damnit! And then I was sobered by the sublimity of the moment ... awakening to the reverence in their approach, the soft pattern of their wake along the inlet shore. It broke gently along the rocks and spread gracefully across the inlet and into the sand bars. I felt ashamed of my initial greed as we humbly shared what so few are blessed to witness.

The ripples in the water seem to almost contrast the clouds.
The color emitted by the sun is beautiful.

I could only imagine.
Unfortunately, teenage-city life prevents me from being able to ever experience something like that.
