Bespangled Sky

The universe grants this old man another day.

Purple clouds hang against a burgeoning blue

Brightening scene backdrops black trees on the horizon

Darkness again giving way to light brand new

Spirits of night... spell soon will be broken

Flickering stars once more bidding their final adieu

Chilly night air biting at my cheeks

Smokey haze rises from the neighbours' flue

Fresh melodies shortly will float through the sky

Pink quickly replaces purple against the blue

Promising one more moment with nature I can spend

Yes I am lucky to have another day to view

Rays stretch across the heavens reaching the valley floor

Sun's warmth softens white frost into dew

Almost immediately colors brilliantly abound

Blessed I am to have this day in my queue
