Sunrise, a painting becoming
 visible, on the horizon.

Up it goes each morn,
Till the dew disappears.

The sun has risen high in the sky,
Like a beacon of light.

The warmth of the day is here  
to delight.

Till nightfall descends,

The end of the day paints 
the western sky.

And twilight vanished into night.

    Lovely Anne, but, it has a double bright side.... one is .. the night has beauty of its own... and once its over ... we can await another painting in the sky... while the dew sinks back into the earth... enjoyed... p.d.
