Arise

She is rising up and growing stronger

Just beyond the sheer blanket of ocean before me

I witness the beginning of her elegant ascent

Glowing only the way she can

Bright red and deep orange

She glides up over the water’s never ending edge

The life giving globe, the brightest thing I know

I welcome her, with this dawn of the new day

She responds by endlessly burning away

As if she will never burn out

A constant source of life and energy

And once more she begins her smooth path

Across the pale blue sky

Leaving lingering sherbet colored reflections

On the water below.
