a "sky on fire" description of the sun coming up
                    "Chasing Skies on Fire"

Gazing on silver-gray ground,
         glistened wet.
Traveling toward the edge of luster light.
Horizon at the bare break of dawn.

Approaching a place to peer and ponder,
         a place close, yet unreachable.
Thoughts near, and unthinkably far.
Horizon at the bare break of dawn.

Searching for a poised sound,
         perhaps a hushed noise,
soft and soothing to those who slumbered.
Horizon at the bare break of dawn.

Remembering morning moments of before,
         placid pauses to consider,
essential peace preferred.
Horizon at the bare break of dawn.

Chasing skies on fire,
         re-kindling old possibilities,
knowing opportunities anew.
Horizon at the red rising of dawn.
