Look Up At the Sky

Ponder now the sky's scene of beauty,
That unpredictable surprise;
Those magnificent shapes and colors
Will soon dissolve before your eyes.

Our busy days demand attention,
But sometimes there’s an outstanding view;
The sky presents an intriguing picture,
An optical phenomena looking at you. 

Treat yourself to a thoughtful moment,
You’ll do well to consider the how and why;
The grand Creator of Everything
Shows us splendor in the sky.

He tells us it's a "22 degree halo with 2 sun dogs and a tangent arc on the top."
