The Sun

The Sun is bright

Golden, radiant

It gives us light

And warmth


And because it is so bright

It has no knowledge of

What darkness is


Nothing changes its shine

Its magnificence or resplendence

No earthly cloud, no storm

No black damp chill


It lights up

Everything in its path

Creeps through

Even the crack in the door

And cares not what it shines on


It does not shine for money

For power nor for love

It does not shine in exchange

For anything we can give.


It shines because that is its nature

That is what the Sun does

It shines!
