yet again

once
many many years ago
I sat on the beach
in Santa Monica
long after midnight
waiting to see the sunrise
I had a bottle of scotch
or maybe bourbon
as company
and watched the horizon
sometime
in the early hours
as it became light
all around me
and there was no sun
in the sky
I realized the sun
rose in the east
and set in the west
it was the wrong coast
for what I was expecting
a lesson there
I learned
either change your expectations
or your coast
a lesson here
I am learning
all over
yet again
