At first glimmer the rooster crows
 proclaiming dawn of a new day
As critters flutter a barn door shudders
 sending the early bird on its way

Among the leaves and hardy stems
 dewy petals curled so tight
Leisurely unfurl and delicately twirl
 embracing the shimmering light

Gently parting the drawn curtains
 waking with a glowing caress
Lured from dreams with diffused beams
 the warm transition out of darkness

Along with elements of fire, water, and air
 relying on its natural sustenance
For growth and vitamin D, warmth and energy
 we cannot be deprived of  our solar radiance
