The Diffused Sun
The evening sun
Sets. Ember-like in the horizon
Gathering memories of the day-gone-by:
Those loved, conversations spoken, tasks fulfilled.
Leaves reds purples yellows streaked across the sky
Finally, a whisper and a faint breath, the light
Gives way to deep blue and then, star speckled darkness.
The morning sun
Rises. Everything under its spell draped in a
Deep glow of orange, and on to a palette of soft yellows
Energy steeping in a cup of wake-me-up-it’s-time-to-face-the
The sun after a storm
Paints. Glorious, masterful strokes
Casting beams here and there
In varying shades of intensity: amalgamated light and shadow
Light and clouds play together, mellow, beautiful, quiet.
The sun in a raindrop
Reveals. Broken light, a hidden spectrum in one single ray
A surprising, spectacular array of color.
The sun in a forest
Filters. Timeless in dense leaves, branches
A delicate weaving through mist and dew,
Broken and bejeweled:
A still life of perfection.
