A welcoming sight to behold,
the anticipation of your rising, and
the striking beauty of your setting,
oh sun, a longing to reach out
and touch you….to be a part of the
picture that you paint over the blue skies,
lush oceans and plentiful mountains.
Hearing the waves embrace the shores
on a lazy summer’s day, while the taste
of a ripe peach, or a juicy melon accents
the evening’s gentle breeze; a moment
that can only be described as tranquil;
to touch you, Mother Nature, would
satisfy the passion burning deep within.
Passion’s desire to reach out and touch
the Earth’s goodness and humanity’s smile.
