Week 40; A Poem a Day

10/1/16

I pledge allegiance to the sunset
Of every color in the spectrum,
And to the planet over which it has blazed,
Constantly, ever since the Earth mattered,
And to the inhabitants thereon, every one of them,
Flawed, beautiful, innocent, guilty, as they are –
One nation, just fractured, broken but whole;
Under nothing, only surrounded
By emptiness teeming with dark and light:
Indispensable, our one home, our one life;
With liberty the deepness of the ocean
And justice its calm, unstoppable current,
As the surface rolls and swells, warmed
By the perpetually setting sun.
