Sunrise Tanka

in morning’s twilight
you arise, embraced by bird
songs in scarlet skies
oceans sparkle with your gaze
fingers of light bursts through clouds

dawn shines, portrays its 
sovereign self amidst the hues 
warmth endows its worth
growth glows in divine design
rainbows are formed in fine mist

    Perfectly said! It's like watching the sunrise and feeling the warmth it bestows upon us!....I wrote a poem called "Sowed Hope", in your form; hopefully I did some justice to it and not insult! Take care....
