Dawn in Fethiye

5.15 am
Lights twinkle and shimmer
Across the breathtaking silent bay

A cock crows
A dog barks
The sound and movement of a solitary car

The pinky painted streaky sky
Contrasting with dark ominous clouds
Like a skyscrape painting
Above distant grey mountains
Enclosing the bay

The revving engine of a boat
Somewhere in time
A honking horn far away
More barking in unison to greet the day

The haunting stillness
The changing sounds
As dawn approaches

The light gets brighter
As a new day in Fethiye unfolds
