Sunrise

Posted on

The Sun advances
And the sky alights.
Clouds that were grey
Turn incredible shades
Of pink, orange, red,
The sky on fire.

As first light appears, I realize
That we aren’t standing still,
with the sun approaching.
We are on a massive, turning sphere,
In continual motion, dynamic.
I can almost feel the motion…
Almost.

As the sun breaks the horizon -
Orange, blazing, blinding -
The clouds are now yellow
Or white, or grey again.
Why don’t I notice the
Gradual change? It’s
Only when I glance away
And back again that I see
The beauty anew,
The dynamic sky,
So awesome,
So beautiful,
It strikes a chord in me.

Infinity, Eternity

Posted on Updated on

I gaze up at infinity

In the clear blue sky.

And in the crisp, starry night,

I hear infinity cry.

Expansive, unreachable, unimaginable.

But I find eternity

In every conscious moment,

As infinity collapses down

To this very moment.

Time stops… I engulf it…

And I abide in eternity.
