Watching the sunrise

A man watches the sunrise and the affect the sun and the sky has on the land around him. He understands how small he is in the scheme of things as he looks around the beauty of a landscape. For a moment he sees this wonder with the innocence of child before experience and education took away the simplicity of life. Something we should all try to do and reflect that we are all just a small part of a wonderful, beautiful world.

It climbed

It climbed its way from the east and cast light onto new ground on a new day,
As it rose shadows began to get smaller and golden dew on grass disappeared,
Bright flowers leaned gently towards natures light and some petals opened wide,
A small soft breeze caressed green grass to dance around some leaning flowers.

All was at peace.

Sky turned to a brighter blue, birds cut across the heavens and across sunlight,
Small white clouds hung in sweet air their shapes changing slowly all the time,
Cotton wool pictures littered high above, one second a face, one second a hare,
And the sun smiled down on our world, all was at peace, it was all it should be.

I was part of it.

A field of golden corn stretched into the distance to meet the sky on the horizon,
Some corn stalks were higher than others breaking the near perfect straight line,
Florescent turquoise resting on a golden landscape, magical beauty this very day,
So I stood, stared and felt so small, so insignificant, but knew I was part of it all.

Warmed my soul

Sunshine warmed my soul, made my eyes tearfully wet I would not turn away,
Birds swooped into fields and sang songs; a nightingale nearly broke my heart,
Fluffs of clouds changed to pictures that reminded me of lovely times in my life,
I saw as a child full of innocence before experience and education took it all away.
