Heliocentric Love

Welcoming the gift of warmth presented daily.
Blessings from afar 8 minutes late,
attributing to sight
your light is the fundamental reason of our being.
We gravitate and dance at your summons;
we obey.
The masterful display of your power,
showering charged particles
that rain from the depths of the heavens.
Ordinary, yet unique
you illuminate the shadows of doubt
as every morning you awaken the spirit and
your presence is felt with closed eyes,
without looking directly;
without blinding ourselves of your importance,
without heeding to your warnings.
Nothing lasts forever
as you sit centered in
our recognizable universe.
