Night's velvet curtain lifts
Slowly, slowly...
Almost reluctantly...
Allowing the first light of the amber dawn
To spill onto the sky like golden honey,
Replacing the grayish dough of the clouds
With pink, cotton candy...
Some liquid caramel has been spread
Along the horizon of the calm ocean.
Somewhere far, there is a pale hint of strawberry filling...
Maybe just a few purple sprinkles here and there.
And, to top it all off,
Proving the full richness
Of the early morning's flavor,
The giant cherry sun is place right in the middle
Of this sweet delicacy...
