Lawless

Sun the Giver

We are not supreme

We are less than grains of sand

In the vastness of time & space 

We live our lives for an essential reason 

The giver of life is the sun

 

The enormity of its strength 

Can be felt across the earth 

Creatures, plant life, landscapes

Brought about by luminosity 

An intrinsic necessity 

The source of our existence 

 

Thought of as a God

Worshipped throughout time

Felt by every single human being 

By everything on the face of the earth 

 

Give praise to the most needed 

Give thanks to the giver

Sun the giver of life

      It's a bummer. Here in predominantly sunny Colorado, it has gone funky. The color outside was pinkish an hour ago. Snow's a comin'.

      Stay warm Mr. O. Mr. O, the ostrich at my wife's work, only has a lousy heat lamp to stay warm. Poor, crazy freak of a bird!

        Everything within the Existence on this planet Earth, including the Poetry is nothing but Surya Energy.........

        Tesla agrees to this.

          Thanks D. for coming by.

          I was going to explore the possibilities of Surya, but realized that I wasn't well versed enough to give it justice.

          My son is obsessed with Tesla. We ride our bicycles past the site of his laboratory here in Colorado Springs quite often. He was the most fantastic mind of our times.

          "We are the children of the sun" - Dead Can Dance. A brilliant band.

            The giver of life indeed as all nature does.

            St Francis of Assisi (1183-1226) could appear a bit eccentric - 'Brother Sun and Sister Moon' he says. But then he looks beyond the sun and moon themselves to a Creator, and us as creatures - created beings, not in sense of ' you horrible creature, you'.
