Prelude to light

 Vindictive and vicious is the night
 as grim and gruesome shadows shroud 
 the light, an opaque cloud darkens the moon
 as frightened creatures scurry at awful and annoying howls
finding cover int the bushes, or behind a monolith
in a a museum of the unseen

 the heavens are fortunate now
 As a prelude to the morning comes
 to patronise the morning
 sun, amazing is the light of dawn
 delightful in its clarity, opening up to a new day
 The victorious sun shines bright
 taking pride in the strength of its rays
 As an oval cloud rides the wind

    Your imagery is beautifully potent, how welcome is the morning, and how thankful we all are to see it. Well done!
