Light announces day.
Hourglass stands
Loosing life with each drop of time
On every grain of hope.

Liquid walls of rolling glass
Invade the land
The sea insults the shore.

Storm clouds pine and sigh in complaint
Snap and bark in showers of argument.

Trees, too stiff, too tall to dance
Etch and claw in beckoning earth.

Buds open in silent adoration,
Wheat fields sway their harvest song,
As winds play violin to the seated sun
And all look up to see,
Who dropped the rain.

Hourglass stills
Sand spent
Colour sleeps
The symphony bows
Creation steeps.
