Hymn to the Sun


The blushing pastels of eager first light,  
       Unabashed blooms of an arbor in May,    
               A frenzied farewell from frustrated night    
                  Prepare for the aegis of Nature's foray.   
                         Brushstrokes feathering far into the gray    
                                Backgrounds, pinkish-pale crimsons delay 
                        The entrance, the sun's crowning of day,     
               Exploding vestigial dark tones away...   
             A glorious dawn engulfs sound and sight,   
  Prismatic perfection put on display,       
   Mother Nature negating nocturnal blight!    


--Carduelis Tristis
