218. August 6th
A disk of orange peeps above the horizon,
Edging its way into the day.
The light it gives refracts far and wide,
Dispersing across the earth.
Now from here we see not only a thin crescent,
But rather than a slither a full circle.
The sun we can see has risen for all to look upon,
Signifying the light of day to all.
This bright star though far away
Brings and ends this day.
