! Our Sun


Our Sun
on edge
of world
signals
days rush
has finished,
dusk, and
twilight
time begins.

Our Sun’s
warmth stays;
it’s love
still warms,
removes, the
shadows from
our souls.

Moon,
a lightened mirror,
rising on a
darkened
world,
allows

Our Sun’s,
reflected light
to shine,
to remove
the darkness,
and uncertainty
from our lives.

Our Sun is
always free,
no charge
given to
light and warm
our hearts, our souls,
our lives.

    I can feel the kind warmth of a winter sun as I read this. And warmth always has the power to take the shaow from our souls. Beautiful write.

    As always,

    Sun is lifeline for all living beings. Thank God it is free for all and there is no tax on it. Otherwise nothing is free in this corporate world. (Report) Reply

    I can see your blood red sun just slipping below the horizon,
    its shimmering last rays cross the veldt, silhouettes of wildebeest
    casting long shadows, twilight takes over.

    You did'nt say the Sun but 'OUR SUN' which is again not afar but just very near on the edge of the world brings the mighty Sun so close.Your poetic vision shows us how motherly the burning Sun take care of us throughout the Clock.I feel the warmth in your poem.
