Splattered On The Ocean



Peach hues and pink on canvas blue
Breath taking, awe and hush
Great mountains climbed, the sun arrives
With palette, paint and brush

The arched spaced ride from dawn to dusk
Unmeasured time betrays
Orbital "ball" of hot, white gold
The charted pathway blaze

Horizon caught, the falling "egg"
In quiet, still slow motion
The yellow yoke appears soft-boiled
Splattered on the ocean
