Awaken the waters

The earth is hard
but the sand is not
the early morning sunrise
born from the sea
bears its reddening fruit
across the horizon
of the oceans
slowly turning the dawn
red as with blood
in translucent light
stained with the fruit
of ripened berries
the fingers of it spreading
to walk the lightening day
blossoming forth
Christmas aglitter
in the sky
like stained glass windows
to awaken the waters
of a new day
