Early morning Saturday
I was on my way to work
The night was farther along than pure black
but not yet sunrise.
Arriving in downtown
I saw jewels above the river;
I noticed the sky.
Jewel tones streaked across the sky,
colors like black onyx,
blue sapphire, blue topaz,
aquamarine, and purple amethyst.
Life is like that sometimes;
you are on your way to your destination,
wondering if you will ever get there,
it can be gloom and doom sometimes.
All of a sudden,
the day or journey begins to take shape,
there is beauty peaking through
then daylight begins.
