Day Rise

Stratus clouds

framed in the airplane window

wearing the pink hues

of the sunrise


Before the sunbeams can

reach earth’s faraway surface

we are the first

to see the day rise


A feeling of peace

a sense of being so small

in a vast space

A liminal place


flying through

the morning sky


The moment

the sunrise

both fleeting

and magical
