Carpe Diem #1796 New Beginnings ... first sunray

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

We are continuing our exploration of our them "New Beginnings". There are a lot of new beginnings as we have seen already last week. Every day starts with the first sunray. As a new day rises we see how the sky is starting to change colors ... and than ... there it is the first sunray. That first sunray awakens us from our sleep and has something magical.

Today our prompt is "first sunray". I found an example with this prompt in it hidden by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694):

Mume ga ka ni  notto hi no deru  yamaji kana

Scents of Ume blossoms ―
The sun rises like a marvel
Ah, this mountain path

First Sunray

What a joy to feel the sun awaken you with his first rays. I can feel the warmth on my naked body and ... makes me happy ... a new day rises, another day to enjoy.

a new day rises
the first ray of sun
cherishes my body

Not as good as I had hoped, but I think this haiku gives you that feeling to awaken from a night's sleep and the happiness it will give you.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until January 19th at noon (CEST). Have fun!
