Every day starts with a new horizon

Colors melt into one smeared canvas

A beacon, alarming sleepy eyes to awaken

What motivates the sky?

Seconds rush into minutes

Minutes stream into hours

Hours create days, forming years

What motivates time?

It grows from darkness, sprouting into light

A resource in a time of need

Beauty that continuously thrives through history

What motivates the trees?

A drink satisfying ground

It flows in an invisible cycle

Leaving a river of life behind, never dying

What motivates the waters?

They awaken day after day, consuming time

They thrive, accompanied by earth and sea

They move throughout life, eager to be content

What motivates people?
