A golden rise

It was yesterday when you died
At the horizon far west
And your blood smothered 
The touching edges 
Of the sky and the mountain 
While you sank in its redness

Your funeral was fairly attended
By multitudes of mourning stars
Uniformly dressed in black

Today you resurrected
At the touching edges
Of the sky and the mountain far east
And like a child 
Fresh from its mother’s womb
You were covered in blood 
Which turned golden as you rose

Your resurrection comes as a sign
Of the birth of a new life
It turns our darkening dreams gold
It illuminates our paths 
And makes us see the future 
Awaiting beyond the horizon

Yet again you will
In the evening die 
And sink in a pool of blood
At the touching edges 
Of the sky and the mountain far west
And leave us longing 
For another golden rise
