Sunrise in Elephant Butte


Sunrise in the mountains,
Molten copper sky.
Light from Heaven’s herald
Brings the day alive.
And seeing this creation –
It makes me catch my breath.
Never take for granted
This life in which we’re blessed.
So thank you, God, I thank You –
For smells and sounds and sights,
As blackness fades to purple,
And morning follows night.

– Rose, Elephant Butte, NM
