Easter sunrise in my zip code

I’m intrigued by Miami’s poetry contest titled “Zip Ode” and have contrived one of my own – based on my Easter sunrise service experience.  My zip code is 98226:

The park at the lake is empty at dawn.
Mist rises from the water and geese feed.
Dark foothills
rim sky
where day promises to break open.

I don’t usually wake early to witness the sunrise
watching and waiting, my senses alert to every
nuanced minute.
Just briefly
my life is on God’s time.
