A smile from the Sun

A glimpse of creation
Sweeps through this land,
Shadowing salvation
From mountains to sand.

A source of elation
Possible to withstand,
Ancient adoration
A wonder at hand.

Eclipse in formation
Like prophet’s command,
Defying stagnation
Can we understand?

Such smile of carnation
Better than planned,
Signs of divination
With a Sun on remand
Under Moon’s elevation.
