    The sun
    The sun sought me out
    In the darkness of dreamland.
    The sun
    The sun blazed a path along my locs
    Attempting to penetrate my closed lids.

    Half asleep I turn towards you
    Embracing you as if you are the warmth of a lover.
    My arms opening
    My legs spreading
    My lips curving in an inviting half smile
    As my eyes open
    And I give praise.

    You have awakened me.
    you have opened my eyes.
    You allow me to greet the day with grace.
    You are one of the fundamentals of life.

    Your warmth penetrates the earth.
    You give the crops sustenance.
    Without you, there is no brightness
    Only a pale disaster of a day
    That has people calling out for you
    Even though your disappearance is necessary.

    When you turn your back on us
    In this part of the world
    People in another part of the world
    Are allowed to benefit from your healthy rays.
    The earth itself turns to face you
    And you see everything.
    Nothing is immune from your view.

    Crimes against nature.
    Crimes against human nature.
    You bear witness to it all
    And like a witness
    You represent justice.

    You are a true testament to the saying
    That what goes down must come up
    And what comes up must go down.

    Wonderful ode to the sun, it does embrace so much in our lives, doesn't it? I could almost feel the rays of warmth. Flow on.
