“Sunrise”

 

Her best friend

wasn’t talking much

right now

it was still

technically

night

but the moon

that had hung

above them

for the last

six hours

was gone now

pointing out

a fact to

both of them

that their time

together

was nearing an

end,

in the morning

she takes off

to a college on

the east coast

as her best friend

is left to roam

the beaches on

the west coast

alone

neither one was

big on trust

their list of

friends

both contained

only one name,

she looks over

at her best friend

studying her face

one she had spent

the last four years

running the gauntlet

of high school with,

her friend knows

she’s staring at her

not wanting to turn

and look back

at her right now

afraid she might

start crying

so she continues

staring out at

the horizon

seeing the bright

glowing amber strip

across it

a prequel

to the arrival

of the sun

“Sun’s coming up”

is all she says

her first spoken

words

in over an hour

both girls reach

down

for their sunglasses

that they have

hanging around

their necks

and put them on,

her friend able

to turn towards

her now

hiding her eyes

from direct contact

with hers

behind the dark

lenses

of her cheap

sunglasses

her friend

gives her a weak

knowing smile

she gives her back

the same thing

both girls

looking into the

sunglasses of the other

give one another

a nod of

acknowledgement

then turn to

face

the oncoming sun,

they both just

quietly sit

and watch as

the sun slowly

takes to the

sky

and when the

sun

finally lifts it’s

last bits over

the horizon

and becomes whole

she says

to her friend

“It’s Beautiful”

her friend

just replies

“yea, it is”

then starts the car

and drives…
