Sunrise – Sunset

by kim blades, writer

It is a holy thing to see

each new opening morn,

the beginning of a journey precious to me

begun with the tender light of dawn.


So soft, so calm, so eloquent

lightens and brightens o’er the land,

the glitter of starry skies is spent

diminished by the golden orb’s stand.


The walk across the heavens begins

a journey of timeless grace,

sustaining all life on our planet that spins

spreading light to every place.


Sunset is like the morning

both brighten up the sky,

unlike the golden pink of dawning

flaming sunsets herald the end is nigh.


Of golden sand and emerald grass

colours brought forth by sunlight’s boon,

the sinking orb fighting to the last

to outshine twinkling stars and silver moon.
