Ode to the Sun

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Take a few minutes to watch the morning sunrise or the evening sunset. Such an amazing thing to do. It only takes a little bit of your time. It is like taking in a breath of fresh air. With spring upon us the sunrise / sunset will begin to take shape once more, last a little longer and be enjoyed by many.

The morning sun begins to rise
In eastern sky he shows
Rebounding light from night to day,
To set our world aglow.

each star at night took their place
to sing in heaven’s choir
sun in background soon will show
its blazing ball of fire.

as January makes its way
into our heart’s in time
there’s nothing like a sunrise
to place our day in rhyme.

emoticon“There's beauty in the silver singing river, There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky, But none of these and nothing else can match the beauty, That I remember in my true love's eyes” ~ Bob Dylan

Have a glorious emoticon day ~ Donna
