A Poem by Undying Glory

Something we all take for granted...and my own take on it


I look at my watch. 
It's time. 
As I watch, the deep blue skies
Slowly turn violet, 
The colour of the flowers
That dot my backyard. 
The first golden strands of light shine through, 
across the distant horizon, 
Illuminating all that I see
Along the distant shoreline,
Banishing the foreboding picture
the trees in the park paint at night, 
And casting its radiant glow upon
The dull, dreary chalet houses nearby. 
Crimson the sky soon becomes, 
The harbinger to the coming day,
And the sun peeks out from the horizon,
And I can imagine it saying,
"Good morning!" to the world. 
Yet the good-natured, spectacular greeting to all
Is ignored time and again
By the grey-clad people with big suitcases, 
On their way to
Another boring day at work.

Remind me of one of my amateur works (I don't exactly remember, some "Concrete hearts" or something, lol. Haven't posted it here). When I think of this, always wish I were born on a different world. Still, I enjoy those sights. A good read.

Keep writing.
