Dawn Sprinkler
(A poem inspired by a painting by Virgil Nez)

Dawn Sprinkler - Virgil Nez
Dawn Sprinkler - Virgil Nez

Out of the east
he awakens dawn,
calls the sun to rise,
dances away starlit
darkness and night hunters
late on the prowl.

The earth turns
beneath now quiet feet
as he returns to sleep
the day out into
spinning night,
awaiting his time
to rise again and sprinkle
light across the land and
dance dawn to awaken
a new day.
