Treasure Island

Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Choose Well Your Time

choose well the time
of arrival and departure
least you be burned by the sun

those intense rays
may seek out
fair flesh to burn

dark skin
may burn also
but moments later

all time
is relative
equates to

disproportionate burnings
for different skin types
at different times of the day

the sun has no
burning power
when respected

take care in the sun
when venturing forth
on heart's journey

when we use shade
or an umbrella
the sun's power is reduced

or nullified
as on
a cloudy day

or at dawn
or dusk
or dark of night

another simple solution
so easily obtainable
use a quality sunscreen

And pays us but with earth and dust;
