Choose Well Your Time - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

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
