Untitled Poem #1 (Waking To A Burning Sunrise)

waking to a burning sunrise
clouds billowing vermillion and gold
like scorched pillows
against a bruised sky

my open eyes recoil in distress
waking to a burning sunrise
franticly trying to recapture
the euphoria of dreams

once more lashes flutter and reveal
the swollen fiery sky
waking to a burning sunrise
my horror changed to glee

when softer light diffused the morning
and harmony returned
no longer would I cringe and cower
waking to a burning sunrise
