Sunrise Over Apartments

Where are the hills?
I see none around me.
Where is the sunrise on hills?
I see it through my neighbors’ apartments.
I just see their walls brightening, reflecting sun’s rays.
 .
 .
.
No sounds of distant waters dash,
 instead I hear the siren of office working hours.
The bending roads with honking motors
.
.
.

Whenever I read H W Longfellow’s poem “Sunrise on the Hills” I crave to see one, but this is the sight I get to see.

Sunrise on the Hills
I stood upon the hills, when heaven’s wide arch
Was glorious with the sun’s returning march,
And woods were brightened, and soft gales
Went forth to kiss the sun-clad vales.
