As I Wait For the Sun to Rise
By Jesi Scott
In the vastness of the indigo heaven
Brighter than Jupiter and Mars,
Which bow to her radiance,
And all the stars in the sky
Twinkle in homage to her beauty.
Her incandescence sparks awe
As I, alone in the sleeping world,
Marvel at how small I am in the grand tapestry
Of a universe which can turn a small planet,
Named for the goddess of Love,
Into a diamond that sparkles and glows
And gives hope to a world
full of lightning and war.
