how many poets have tried to find
words to describe the beauty of a sunrise
as the orange ball of fire rests along the Earth's horizon?
how many photographers have grabbed their camera
to capture the hues which radiate from the sun
as it finds its way into the blue sky?
how many painters have mixed colors
on their palettes of orange, yellow, and red
to replicate the shades of the sun's ascent toward the heavens?
@Cathy L. Mere
So I couldn't decide between draft I or II. I decided to not decide and post them both.
Poets fail to describe
the orange ball of fire
along Earth's horizon.
Photographers cannot capture
in the sun's ascent.
Painters are unable to mix colors
on palettes of orange, yellow, red
to replicate its beauty.
Only our eyes truly see it
in its full magnificence
as the sun rises in the morning sky.
