Roving eyes

Look to the summer sky,

Shining and shimmering

Like the gleaming, gilded sun;

Warm rays wander the earth

And burn in abundant beauty,

Too stunning a pagan deity

And blind to the idolatry

To grant a glimpse to the eager eyes

Growing greedy to see

The world in the sun’s own sight.

Widening eyes

Look up in surprise

Of the beauty they behold;

No startled stare could dare compare

To the gaze fixed on the rays

Reaching down to kiss the heated ground;

But a glimpse is all they wish to steal,

The sun’s embrace all they yearn to feel.

Such a sight

Gives color to the clear daylight;

Cirrus clouds of white and gray

Shield the world from the searching rays

Until the eve of night

Though the people plead and cry,

Their wanton worship urging them to try

To spread their wings and fly.

The searing sun sees all they do

And says to them to stay true

Beneath the blue, stretching sky,

For not all are meant to reside high.

As I first started reading this my first thought, wow these are long sentences... which is something I also write in often, and as I contemplated the poem and the sentence length, I believe it has a lovely effect of lengthening or reaching, just like sunlight. Beautifully done @SerenaLantha!
