It was a dream. The day the sun came up !
|Lake Superior 2009 by James B Beard aka Noodin|
The first day the sun came up white. No one noticed all that much. Some greeted it as they do each day.
The second day the sun came up yellow. People seemed to go on in their normal way. Many would pick up there weapons of choice.
The third day the sun came up red. More people seemed intent on hurting one another.
The fourth day the sun came up brown. The people felt bitter and discouraged.
The fifth day the sun came up green. The people stopped and wondered.
The sixth day the sun came up black. The clouds were filled with soot from fires, pollution from modern technologies, ash from volcanoes, smoke clouds from explosions of war. The earth was scorched and bare. Animals were few and birds did not sing. The people were fearful.
The seventh day the sun came up blue. The people put down the weapons and gave thanks.
