Red Horizon SF

There are bright twinkling stars obscured by a sprinkling of clouds.

                                   Oh! Starry, starry night with a crescent moon to give light~

Then a hint of daybreak with some faint light, the light that reveals 
        
                                                    more with each passing fantasy flight...

Explosion of red on horizon revealing silhouetted black clouds to the south.

The distant cock-a-doodle-do of the fighting red roosters echoes through the dark
                                        
                    outline of forest trees.

Sound that is  floating upward and outward

                   greeting the sun inviting it to come on up to light and warm their world..

A Mockingbird chatters, an early riser, up and already singing his welcome to the 
 
                   white-haired lady 'pon the porch..

There's a stillness and peace that saturates my being~peace, peace wonderful 

                                                       peace.

A blazing sun now cast upon clouds a glow like a fire against chared blazing logs

          crackling in the hearth warming the body through and through..

Nature greets the morn with open arms  
                
                                               instead of greeting it like one who greets the warmth of  

                 hearth with hands rubbing and shivering waiting for the touch of heat.

    Oh , Sara, finally I can see this one and why it did not win in my contest. You went over the line count, dear lady. It was up to 16 lines. This would have scored if not for that. Thanks so much for trying the contest. I think my contest inspired an awesome poem from you.

    Explosion, that is the best word to describe your incredible write, a great and huge explosion of red light coming from the heavens to welcome us to another day, the birds and animals all welcome a new day with joy! I really enjoyed reading this expressive poem this evening! What a delightful piece you have written here Sara! Great Work!!
