Off in the distance the slightest speck of orange appears

Its appearance almost insignificant an infant illumination

The orb expanding its light streaking the linear horizon

The day rising like a sleeping lion with a thunderous roar

The dawn energized by the increasing warmth of the sun

This sleeping giant suddenly arises with its full strength

Its radiance quickly spilling throughout the hemisphere

Like an ant in a terrarium I wake humbly before the giant

A sleepy eyed and mostly unimportant pedestrian creature 

My stature growing rapidly under the passion of its heat

I arise standing tall joining the sun in our joint mission

The enterprise of bringing light and joy to my fellows

This insight renewed on this beautiful Easter morning.
