Skywatch Friday - At The Dawning Of The Day

At the Dawning of the Day

"Every Sunrise"
Every sunrise is a present, A gift from God above,
Gift-wrapped with scarlet ribbons, Tied with bows of love.

Each day's a new beginning, A time to start anew,
While all the stars are sleeping, The rose is fresh with dew.

Each day's a new creation, Too lovely to ignore,
We may find a blessing, Just outside our door.

We cannot keep the past, Like fireflies in a jar;
Nor journey to the future, By wishing on a star.

Every sunrise is a blessing, A gift for just today,
Rejoice my friend, Embrace it before it fades away!

Beautiful and the clouds are fascinating - I can see a line of giant creatures marching along a cloudy walkway above the setting sun. Journeying to the future.
