worries drowned in wine
come back to life
with the sun,
morning glory –
regrets on hold

For Carpe Diem Haiku Summer Retreat #16
Taken off the pier in my neighborhood this evening.
The light in our skies this evening was extraordinary. The sun’s journey at sunset was in spectacular mode and is the most favored setting sun of the summer solstice in these parts.
The sun truly rise at the exact eastern point and sets in the exact west. At other times of the year, it does otherwise. Who knew!! So on streets that runs east to west, it looks like the sun is setting on the asphalt at the western end of the streets. A huge one, like a harvest moon. This phenomenon around here is nicknamed Manhattan Henge..you know, like Stonehenge…
Well, I didn’t get any of those photos, couldn’t brave the crowds.
Here is a video on Manhattanhenge from astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson. He is at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan.

This is what is looked like down one of my streets.
the shimmer of the ocean
this morning’s sunrise
reverence to a new day
from her perch on the mountain
This post in response to Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt: Carpe Diem #785 goraikou or sunrise seen from a mountain top
Inspired by the following haiku written by our host.
after a steep climb
I get my prize
falling in love
is like climbing Mt. Fuji
Ah! that sunrise
