WITH SUNRISE I RISE
As the first breath of life, a spectacular sight,
Displacing darkness, bringing forth light,
A magnitude so powerful, yet so peaceful,
To feed life and nature, with a wondrous might.
Beyond thunderous clouds, and hidden beyond,
When the heavens are blue, and all is clear,
A sphere so astonishing, as it rises each day,
A sight more amazing, than a magical wand,
From a glowing arc, as it rises through the dark,
Replacing emptiness, with the glow of light,
Till it reaches a height, To share the strength,
Protecting life and nature, like a heavenly ark.
Day in and day out, it continues to rise,
To perform a duty, it is meant to do,
To give us life, with a beauty so rare,
For all to adore, in the magnificent skies.
