mr. golden sun

Been meaning to write lately. Spring is in the air and I feel so glad; inspired down to my core. Daylight savings has given us more sunlight, and though we got rain yesterday and high winds again today, I am so glad for the sun making more of an appearance lately. Huzzah sun!

And besides the sun, I also want to welcome my newest followers David and Anna. Thanks for joining.

"The Sun"

Have you ever seen
anything
in your life
more wonderful


than the way the sun,
every evening,
relaxed and easy,
floats toward the horizon


and into the clouds or the hills,
or the rumpled sea,
and is gone--
and how it slides again


out of the blackness,
every morning,
on the other side of the world,
like a red flower


streaming upward on its heavenly oils,
say, on a morning in early summer,
at its perfect imperial distance--
and have you ever felt for anything
such wild love--
do you think there is anywhere, in any language,
a word billowing enough

for the pleasure
that fills you,
as the sun
reaches out,
as it warms you


as you stand there,
empty-handed--
or have you too
turned from this world--

or have you too
gone crazy
for power,
for things?
