Sunrise on Mt. Fuji

Today at dVerse, Paul is the Pubtender. He is prompting us to write on “drunkenness”.

Sunrise on Mt. Fuji
On Mt. Fuji’s summit
the air is thin.
The water in my bottle is warm –
as it goes down my throat –
pure nectar!
The sun begins to rise.
I become drunk on the sun –
peace settles in my soul.

    I always have a bottle of water with me, Toni. I would love a sunrise here that I could become drunk on!

    Drunk on the sun. That’s perfect. Let’s do it together. I’ll bring the coconut oil; you mix the daiquiris. 🙂

    Beautiful poem. I can see the sun coming up over the distant horizon… It must have been a beautiful sight. Even warm water tastes good on top of a mountain!

    That is a stunning photograph, and the poem is also vivid.
