Lovers Chase

.

The sunrise moves its reaching light

like a curious gentle wave

washing and retrieving

the land that night had claimed

.

She graces through the grasses

like a watercolor brush

leaving wet drops to dry

In the still and sleepy hush

.

She reaches further onward

untangling shadows from the trees

waking their nightly residents

snuggled beneath the leaves

.

The morning moves on yonder

pulling on lighted breeze

the mighty sun up from her chamber

to ride the canopy

.

The sun commands in rapt attention

each photosynthesizing leaf

they bow warm heads as she exits

like a blazing sword into its sheath

.

Evening descends and drifts along

with ghostly creeping grace

he calls to twilight as she goes

and kisses her turning face

.

She leaves the delicate lightening bugs

to twinkle in the grasses
he unrolls the shadows through wood

deepening as he passes

.

The owls arrive to call their news

from glen up to the ridges

while bats stream out like pouring rain

from under darkened bridges

.

And now the sunrise

winks a brightly playful eye

to see the things that night has done

while on the other side

.
