Morning sun has opened its eye
the orange ball coming up from crimson sea
to kiss the sapphire blue ocean
before riding its golden chariot.
Golden chariot pulled by horses of fire,
reined by the beautiful God for hours.
Nurturing everything on earth, living or not,
till the moment his horses reach the western horizon.
