GREETING THE SUN

DSCF1131
The first kiss of warmth on my face
Like a returning lover,
Sends a glow deep into my core
Grounding me.
I stand, eyes closed,
Paying homage,
Participating
In the oldest human ritual:
Greeting the sun.
Her ultraviolet energy
Travels through space
Seeps into my skin, my blood
My liver, my kidneys
My bones.
Sparking the parts of my brain
That hold primordial messages—
Wake up!
Seek food, share, mate,
Laugh, take joy, create.

No wonder I bask in her glory
She balances my world,
Propels me forward
To greet the day.
