Yellow And Illuminating Brilliance

Out on porch to glimpse a sunrise Orange sun cast gray 'on clouds Whispy light airy sparse white clouds On horizon not like shroud Then as the sun inched up orange Disappeared replaced by Illuminating brilliance clear Against blue blue sky Dramatic change for human eyes I longed to stay awhile How many didn't even notice Beauty very worthwhile Iambic heptameter used as ballard stanza Used by Emily Dickinson in many of her works

What a great display of wondrous colors and clouds in the air my friend! The beauty of a sunrise is beyond anything imaginable in my opinion, so many variable within its creation! There can be so many different colors splashing within its cast! What a wonderful poem Sara, I love it! Great Work!!
