While I used to easily see dramatic sunrises on my Mountain, here I am more likely to catch the gentle pearly colours of early morning clouds, or the mist rising above the mangroves to blanket the mountain on its way to join those clouds.
Reflections in still water are an added bonus. I spot a solitary pelican sedately cruising over the glassy surface.
And then maybe it sees me, because it takes off with long deep flaps of those massive wings. And, always amazingly to me, that heavy body becomes airborne.
I apologise to it for disturbing the peace, and for perhaps causing its early rising.
