The Child Of The Sun Poem by Maria Mitea

The Child Of The Sun

Rating: 5.0

it is a shadow

of the tree
dark lighting
at the zenith of the day, tasting
the sweat on man's forehead

the child of the sun
it is a shadow

of grass
opaque existence
angle of light
in the calmness of the earth

the child of the sun
it is a shadow, silently
following the man
to the water spring
in the valley of springs,

the mother sun
quenches its thirst
with the tears of the earth,

the child of the sun
it is a shadow
