Diamonds In The Sky


The bright sun rises above the earth like a sparkling jewel
Shines its light with such radiance and warms the air

Then sets in the west to make a way for the luminous moon
That casts its brilliant shadows all through the night

Her heavenly glow is hidden so that the bright stars can shine
They display their twinkling lights to brighten the universe

Brilliant and radiant clouds suddenly turns blue to gray
Shedding their tears with raindrops that fall softly upon the earth

Saturating the parched ground with its life sustaining water
The rainbow appears in majestic splendor after the rain

Shaped like an arc through the skies with its splash of colors
Reaching across the Heavens like a painter's work of fine art

Draping the sky like a portrait that was painted by the hands of God
Reaches to the end of the earth like a flashing diamond in the sky

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Diamonds are not only found beneath the earth but
can be seen above the earth with the naked eye. The
flashing diamonds like the sun, moon, and stars above the earth don't have to be searched for.
