Morning breaks
Colors splashed upon skies of gray
New life introduced at the rising of the day
Radiating sunlight lighting up a damaged earth
Greater meaning
A direction, a purpose appointed at birth
Looming clouds
Gathering ominously across the ignorant sky
Innocence stripped away
The sun hides, suddenly shy
Confidence returns along with wisdom and age
Now prepared
Ready to overcome adversity and dismay
A burst of colors
Yellow to orange; purple to blue
Bleeding together
Every second changes, the combination new
God's painting
A celebration of life so wonderful
Soon will fade as darkness begins to fall
Night descends
Where the end resides
Only stars remain
The legacy of you and I


The author's comments:
At first glance, this poem is about the stages of the day. However, if looked at closely, these stages represent our lives. I wanted to provide a unique analogy to inspire others to remember how important life is every time they look outside.
