Desert Sunrise

Monday, 10 March 2008 7 responses

Early morning quiet still

I watch and wait patient

Sky black dotted with sparkling light

Air clear sharp with each breath

Slowly across the desert floor

Across the sagebrush gritty dirt

Like rippling fire sweeping far

Morning sun rays spread

Kaleidoscope of carmine color

Creeping slowly toward the hills

Suddenly like God's great switch

Shadows move dissipate in grace

The mountains glow like flares

So many shades of red hue

Mother nature at her peak

Tis only but a passing moment

Well worth this man's wait

The image now emblazoned well

In the gypsy memory bank
