In a golden sky the clouds all glow
in many shades of orange and pink
when the sun hides behind the far horizon.
The moon rises, the sun sinks, the sky dims.
The sky which once was golden is no more
and is replaced by a star filled darkness.
The stars, windows to a light filled world
Full of beauty, power, and might
Where the shadows do not exist but in the void.
In the morning the stars are replaced by the sun
And the sky again becomes a golden sky
Only to turn blue shortly after sunrise.
