Dawn of the Orange People: A Poem for Equal Rights and Marriage Equality

Under the cloak of darkness
they journey out of hiding
to a secret place that
welcomes them.
Tonight they gather in the
greatest of numbers,
abandoning caution,
defying warnings of an
immense release of energy
and coming of color.

The joyful reunion unleashes
their deepest emotions,
hidden for so long out of
fear of persecution.
Suppressed passion rises
quickly and intensely,
until the desert air quietly,
yet violently erupts into
bright, surging bursts
of orange.

The pulsating glow
penetrates the night sky,
lighting mountains, valleys,
and the great sea.
This day the world awakens
long before sunrise to
a new kind of dawn,
of a people wanting only to
love freely and openly in
the brightest light of day.
