Gazing up into the eternal darkness
The sky is still spackled with tiny glowing orbs
A faint glimmer of gold begins to peek above the distant land
High above the clouds catch ablaze
They become flickering flames
Burning the blanket of night away
Vibrant colors of lemon, peach, and strawberry
Fill the once empty dome
As the bronzy gong rises
The newborn light kisses the silk of the spring roses
Lying under a towering oak
The flowers are curled up like docile house pets
Like a beautiful painting
Created by a master artist
Everything is joined in perfect harmony
Nature’s homey miracle
