a Child of the Sun

a Child of the Sun

the beaming Sun
greeted me this morning
with love and forgiveness

he did not even mention
my trespasses of yesterday
nor the thought i now hold this day
that are not filled with his light

his smile ushered forth a true recognition
of my specialness
our specialness
as i struggled to attune myself
yes this morning
i am blessed
yet again

i was not alone
in the acknowledgement of life’s golden grandeur
there were the Mountains,
the Birds,
the Flowers
and countless other things
the Sun embraced

how could i justify
my embracing of dark things
on such a day as this
i am thankful
i am warmed
i am loved

as i begin to connect
to this wonderful exhibition
of life’s blessings
i begin to contemplate my coming day
but nothing seems to matter
for i am content to just sit here
and soak up the possibilities
of a better me

i smile
for with this simple gesture of consistency
i am confirmed
as the child i somehow always knew i was
a Child of the Sun
