My Poetry ~  Night Surrenders the Sky to the Sun Teachings On Love

"The more I study Nature, the more I am amazed at the Creator." ~ Louis Pasteur


Night Surrenders the Sky to the Sun

Ribbons of pink
between the curve
of two mountains.

We sit waiting
with sacred stillness
Crows, dogs, roosters breathe below.

"I like the clouds," he said, sipping coffee.

The sky changes as we speak,
Scarlet, then orange
illuminate the ethereal palette
transforming lightness to golden blaze.

We look up,
Our hearts full
of the beauty
no picture can hold.
