A crimson thread runs through the sky before dawn. The following poem is also painted into the painting
"Crimson Thread".
The world is turning into dawn, and I
can see a crimson thread start to appear
announcing that the newest day is near -
it makes me greet the beauty with a sigh.
Soon the ribbon's red will turn to gold
and other wisps softly to scarlet turn -
water, under influence of light will burn
such colors that it awes us to behold
the transition from nighttime into day
and cause to wonder how we could deserve
this vision - just for living on a curve -
and leaves us without words that we can say,
only the thought that perhaps we should do right
to earn the reward that brings the end of night.
