THE SUN

The Sun

The sun came up as it has since time begun
painting sky and earth in its glorious colours,.
Bewitched I stood there and for a while,
only did exist.

Looking down at my beloved Hibiscus
I told it that I felt sorrow too,
as its budding glories might not bloom;
Autumn was here and quite cold.

So the seasons go and we can but
follow their eternal song,
From spring, summer, autumn and snow.
Learning to embrace and be part.

Yet, the sun will always rise
Sometimes high and at times low,

As we greet this warming globe
Let us rejoice, not moan.

    • Thank you, Anne, for your warming comment. Yes, the last photo is from
      a honeysuckle I have in the garden. It wanted space too. 😊.

      Like your u, I also love that gauzy morning mist as sun breaks through it.
      Yep, nature has it all. πŸŒ»πŸ¦‹.

  1. Lovely thoughts! All seasons have their own charm Miriam, if spring brings new buds, autumn sweeps away all the unwanted, worn down elements of nature and paves way for more beauty. I love Mother Nature in all her attires… so does the sun. 😊

    • Thank you, Balroop, for your lovely thoughts about the seasons. They do indeed all have such wonders to offer. I also love all the seasons in nature.
      Depending on where you live, some might be more charming than others.😊.
      Without the Sun we would have none.πŸ€—.

    • Thank you, Miriam, for your lovely comment. I can tell you share the
      light of nature and it’s exciting changes. And of course the Sun.
      I am delighted that you could feel the scent of Honeysuckle. I plant one every
      time I move. The scent reminds me of the island where I grew up and Honeysuckle grew wild and scent drifting down was so wonderful.

  2. Imagine the sun’s time keeping and he has been doing it for millions of years, OMG!
    Nice poem, it is the seasons effect that shows.
    In fact, I have written one on the Sun long back, would want to attempt one more in different aspect.
    I shall give you the link if you want.

    • Thank you for your lovely comment, Shiva. Almost every morning I will step out and see the beautiful spectacle of the sunrise, regardless of season. by the ocean, in woodlands and forests, by the lake and
      as in the photo above – from the deck in the garden.
      The most amazing one was far north in Sweden at midsummer. I saw sunset and sunrise within the hour.
      Heard birds stop singing and start whilst my clock still said midnight.

    Amen. Syncing ourselves with nature’s seasons allows the full spectrum of Being to be enjoyed, even celebrated! xo

  4. Miriam, a wonderful and uplifting poem and I’m joining you in rejoicing at the wonder of the sun, its artistry, its eternal strength! It is easy to have a dip in one’s spirits as darker days draw nigh but your words are a reassuring balm, teaching us to embrace the seasons, their gifts! Thank you so much for sharing and I love the photos, particularly the sparkle of honeysuckle, vibrant and full of light! Hugs xx ❀️🌺

    • Thank you, dear Annika, for your beautiful and life affirming comment.
      You are right that the smiles come easier on sunny days and the grey days
      can be dampening. But, yes, we can embrace them all and find the positives.
      I am so glad you liked my photos πŸ’•πŸŒ».
