Bryce 2015: Day 2, sunrise

The sun appears,
Silhouetting a tabled horizon
Fringed in virga.

Roving crepuscular spotlights
Burnish cliffs of white, and yellow
...and mottled slopes of tangerine.

Clouds yawn,
And a blush of emerald blooms
Amid the desert shadows
To bow beneath the specter
Of a sleeping giant.
