Glad to be Alive Today

Whispers of pink, glide into view, on airwaves of a magical sunset
Glimpses of orange, which uplifts my spirit, gives me an angel peek
Of a glorious end to the day’s fantastic beginning; trees darken softly
I breathe a sigh of release; there is a tiny white violet at my feet.
I dare not move my sandal, for fear of crushing this feeling of awe
Cotton clouds spread across in a frothy stream aid the sun into bed.
God's pretty sky makes me glad to be alive today.

Thank you Allen. I am always surprised when words people use in the comment line turn blue and are double underlined. How do you accomplish that?

"I dare not move my sandal, for fear of crushing this feeling of awe"... perfectly captures the still, breathless wonder of that 'perfect moment'! Lovely!! ;)

And the violet says, thank you, for not stepping on it. So few flowers get such respect.
