an autumn sunrise, magical moments
in an often dreary world
as if an enormous fire
had spread from the horizon:
pillow clouds and thin ones smoking along,
birds on golden trees sang their morning song
but the vibrant colours were eclipsed
by God's painting held in the sky.
Yet everything is transient,
clouds returned to their native grey
although some people ignored the scene
failing to view with wonder in their eyes
the sheer beauty...of the autumn sunrise.
