Sunrise

  I shift restlessly on the bed
It was too late to try to sleep
I get myself up to go for a coffee
But something at the window catches my eye

I move slowly towards that vision
The sight of a dark range of mountain
Two hills lay there hand in hand
With a dot of light playing in their lap

As I watch, the yellow dot grows on them
And sweeps a golden lining along the slopes
The steep slants of that distant valley
Perceive that orange hue on their body

As the little spec looms higher above
It lights the contours of the rocky terrain
It makes the clouds sparkle and shine
As they bend forward for a taste of that gold

The spec is now a blob of saffron
It spreads its wings to reach out to all
And covers the skies with its rich flavor
Soon towers over the earth and its creation

It burns now like a ball of fire
Piercing my eyes that I've to look away
It burns and bubbles on with a deep passion
A passion that keeps life flowing on...
