Orange Clouds Glow Like Japanese Lanterns

Orange clouds glow like Japanese lanterns
awaiting the mighty hologram.

Computer 3D models have wire framed
the famous rugged mountain of legends.

Scaffolding, architects and stone-sculpting
power tools are staged and ready.

Stars align in celestial acronyms to spell the name.
Birds of all species converge in formation,

Forest animals gather in sun-shafted clearings;
dolphins arc in unison under rainbows.

Scholars probe ancient scrolls and sacred texts
to unveil the prophesies.

Many are the faithful who bow in reverence
to such grandiose historical context as

garlands, mau maus, annunciations and hosannas
are lavished by legions of acolytes and scribes.

Saints abide, angels cheer,
Jesus has a 17th row seat.
