Dawn to Dusk

Dawn to Dusk (Minute Poetry)

Crowing bird greeting the first rays
Azure display
Shimmering dew
Swaying bamboo

Scorching sun crowning midnoon blue
Dusty milieu
Summer heat
Sizzling treat

Orange billows bedeck horizon
Rich creation
Silky moonlight
Enchanting sight.

*This is my first attempt... comments are welcome.. :)
