Fire in the Sky: A collection of nature poetry inspired by sunrises and sunsets
Since summer is around the corner, I’m giving you an angelic poetry break this month and introduce you to my first selection of nature poetry, I've already written a decade ago. During the summer, spring and early autumn and winter months, I’ve watched some amazing sunrises and sunsets just out my window of my condo in Lake County, Ohio, including some nice views of city lights, too. Some of these poetry were published back then, in which I’ve marked them in my only nature poetry chapbook with an asterisk. So if you see an asterisk or a star by a selected poem in future hubs, you’ll know which ones were published. Here’s the first 5 nature poems out of 60 in free verse with vivid descriptions. Coming soon, I’ll post a selection of my angelic acrostic heaven’s orchestra poetry later this month and another batch of nature poems next month. Enjoy!
A Beautiful Sunrise Photo for Fire in the sky--not Mine!!
Fire in the Sky
Fire in the Sky
Orange streaks the morning horizon,
Yellow highlights the flames of the sun,
Red blends the colors together in a great contrast,
A bright sunrise lights the way in a black background.
The colors of a fire spreads out in dawn,
Pretty to paint in watercolors or in oils,
Wonderful to shoot photos for nature lovers,
A fire in the sky is a nice morning surprise.

An Evening Sunset can be Beautiful to Watch Over a Lake
Prime Glare and Dayspring Smolder
White, puffy, spread out miasma in a clear skyline,
A triple threat of colors to shout across the ambit,
Reds shot across the view to the lake like a cannonball,
It sets the whole azure on fire, smoldering flames, all over.
Purples paint the canvas like a photogenic portrait,
Pinks pour over the scene to give it an appealing feel,
It's a prime glare, reflecting buildings and windows to the lake,
With a blazing hot sun to sear the moment.
A clear bring fall morning with bright red nebulas,
The day is alive with a bright orange blazing sun,
Gold flashes beyond the sphere to the vista,
And then all the way across to the placid lake.
Orange underneath it, is like a mini half rainbow,
A trio of bright colors lit up the sky like a dayspring smolder,
With an airy-looking touch to the picture of precipitation,
It's enough to snuff the fiery sky out of view.
Dark Sparkles and Peach Snuff
Colors, now ultra-bright, nearly makes an ultimate scene,
Clouds vanish into a black void of darkness,
Yellow shines, like the crescent moon in the sky, and glows,
Orange dollops of color is thrown across the nightfall.
Dark sparkles of colors portrays a "black hole" look,
Circular in nature and space, but with a shot of bright red,
A faint overcast with a hint of blush and white combined,
Swirls of a trio of colors sink into the abyss of the night.
From the shoreline to the skyline to the frontier,
An array of pale colors makes the blaze come alive,
On a quiet morning, the sunup is visible before it fades,
Nebulas white, puffy, and some thin, stretched out like elastic.
A peach snuff is glowing and lighted up like ablaze,
Traces of red is elongated to the end of the peak,
Hints of yellow and light orange makes the peach color lighter,
On a quiet pre-winter morning, this light won't go out.
