The Augury Light

by Thal1959

God had desired to brighten up the night,
A'beaming, sayeth He -
- Let there be light.
But the dazzling light had no blanch or blooms,
to glory fancy-free,
In a gentle way, to portray illumes,
A'reflecting, sayeth He -
- Let there be moons.
That had left the need for a dawning's rise,
to light His sparkling eyes.

In blazing brilliance, forged He needed ones,
A'flaming, sayeth He -
- Let there be suns.
For glorious glowings, twinkling afar,
that distant souls may see,
from pearly white to rusty cinnabar,
A'shining, sayeth He -
- Let there be stars.
But in darkened seas, His last gleam decrees,
Bioluminescence be.
