We take the sun for granted at times! It comes up in the East and sets in the West; quite normal. It gives off light and heat, which it is supposed to do on a regular basis. We can, at times, see ourselves on the ground, as a shadow of ourselves. Our Earth revolves around it yearly giving us the seasons of life. Take the sun away and we become – – – – .
The Sun, the giver of life
Sending out its rays to Earth
This orb, that crawls across the sky,
Throws off it light, with all its might
Shafts filter through the spreading tree boughs
Making diamonds that sparkle in the lakes and ponds
Heat waves shimmer off black asphalt roads
Causing distant far mirages to appear
Many colors stab through the clouds
Bathing us in a rainbow of hope
The Sun, so high up above
Long may it shine…..
