Worship at Dawn

by Rebecca Weber

I watch the clear exuberance of praise
That reaches up with fingers of delight
And spills across the waking world, resolved
To overthrow the tyranny of night.

I walk into the sunrise, arms upraised
To shield my eyes from overflowing light.
Still higher soars the glory, till the haze
Is lost in ringing luminance of white.
