Birth of a New Day

Pale light flickers, orange flecks grey

Shadows intruded by glimmers of day

Dawn light streaming, crimson turns gold

A waking earth startled as its beauty unfolds.

Outback glistens, wetness finds heat

Earth gasps bravely, birth nearly complete

A new day heralded by the labor of night

Creation exhausted by a cry of delight!

A land now bathed in the glow of new life

Giving thanks and rejoicing beyond all strife

Limb like hills stretch upward saluting the sky

Dawning complete

God's presence is nigh.
