Expanse II

Initial glow over the eastern horizon,
The first peak of the morning sun over geometric forms,
So quick, the sun rise,
The glare coming to my eyes,
The light enveloping the landscape,
And the mind breaks free of the chains of night
And sweeps out over the plains lit bright.

Rising autumn sun,
And mind free
To flow among the pastures,
To flow in all the dry desert cracks,
Expanding like an endless river feeding into the sky,
To flow free from gravity
And the pains and sorrows of the world,
And reach out to something divine,
Cleansed in the freshness of a new day.
