Sun Is Walking Across The Sky - Poem by Bharati Nayak

Symbol of light
Oh sun!
As you came into my life
dispelling darkness
I revel in beauty of your grandeur
Open to the warmth of your love
force of creation
Blossoms in me
I become the garden
of roses
Of foliage green
I become the springing rain
And a whiff of scent
That permeates
the passing breeze.

    hi, bharati!

    i was drawn by the title of this one. because of my familiarity with the bible, this first part of psalm 19 was in mind as i chose it:

    1-2 God’s glory is on tour in the skies,
    God-craft on exhibit across the horizon.
    Madame Day holds classes every morning,
    Professor Night lectures each evening.
    3-4 Their words aren’t heard,
    their voices aren’t recorded,
    But their silence fills the earth:
    unspoken truth is spoken everywhere.

    4-5 God makes a huge dome
    for the sun—a superdome!
    The morning sun’s a new husband
    leaping from his honeymoon bed,
    The daybreaking sun an athlete
    racing to the tape.

    6 That’s how God’s Word vaults across the skies
    from sunrise to sunset,
    Melting ice, scorching deserts,
    warming hearts to faith.

    dawn for me is a favorite time of day- which is why so many poems of mine were inspired by, are set in, this time. if you haven't already read it, you might like my heart-song which begins, because of what you have done.

    continue to be dawn to those you meet.

    This poem is one of my earlier posts when I started posting here on Poem Hunter.Thank you Glen Kappy for your keen interest in my poem.As I am not familiar with the bible, your comment makes me aware of the beauty and wisdom contained in this holy scripture.The psalm you quoted has some striking resemblance with my poem.I just wonder- - - - - - -perhaps it is a pure thought, a feeling we experience when we look at Sun moving across sky from sunrise to sunset.

    The Sun...
    The sun is the symbol of power and strength,
    it gives life to people on earth, it makes us see
    light and beauty in the day. A marvelous poem
    to ponder.

    Ebullience of green reverberates in vale of tunes
    warmth embraces into arms of blossom to entice
    exuberance of love dissipates holding joy in hand
    yet by whiff of fragrance airiness billows to endear iridescence, beautiful write by the imagery yet copiously compelling to remember,10+, thanks for sharing

    I love the title of your poem. The image of the sun w-a-l-k-i-n-g is so sweetly intimate. It's not the powerful and overwhelming war-chariot of the mythological image nor is it the impersonal and overwhelming orb of fusion and gases
    of science texts. It becomes instead a companion of our morning walk through a park. And the immediate effect you feel is refreshment and green growth. This is the poetry I love because it makes the world familiar. You praise the grandeur of the sun, but scale down its immensity so that we can express our appreciation directly.
