Poem Series Voting Result and The First Poem of The Series

Last week on M. Sakran’s blog of and about poetry and poetry related things, there was voting for topics for a poem series.  The possible topics were: The Sun, The Color Green, Coins, Carrots, and Sound.

The winning topic was, The Sun.

Starting with today’s post, and for the rest of posts through Friday, there will be one poem per day about The Sun.

Here is today’s poem:


The sky was dark and stars did shine,
and out in space the world did turn,
and as it did there was a sign,
that things would change from what they were.

Out far there was a line of earth,
that seemed to meet the sky above,
before that time there was a dearth,
of light along that far long line.

But then a light did seem to grow,
along the line that was so far,
at first it seemed to be so low,
but soon the sky did change its tone.

The sky that was so black in hue,
did change and glow with yellow light,
and then there was a change to blue,
as the sun rose up in the dawn.
