Sunshine for the Soul

sun kisses the dew
with feathered hues of sequins
the whole world glitters
with extravagance of light
in the red bannered sunrise

no trumpets are heard
for the wide lift of pink sky
as the crimson sun
greets the earth without fanfare
but wraps the soul in splendor

    verse one is perfection, need more pivot on the last 2 lines of verse 2..because you dropped the verb down a line it makes it too connected not enough of a segway? Congrad's on your win. Light & Love
