First Sunray

a glint of orange
dancing on the horizon
bare branches rejoice

My response to Carpe Diem #1796 New Beginnings: first sunray

Today our prompt is ‘first sunray’, and we’ve been given an example by Matsuo Basho to inspire us:

Mume ga ka ni  notto hi no deru  yamaji kana

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