What the sun does

by Jem Croucher


Yellow, warming, lifts my soul
Catches me and comforts. Gives me strength
Encourages smiles when smiles are scarce
Breathes contentment
It is a friend, closer in the summertime
More distant in winter chill. But always there
Always listening. Always rooting for my best interests
It is lavender and jasmine and honeysuckle
Combined and lingering in the evening air
That is, simply, what the sun does

  1. The sun gives vitamin to our bones πŸ™‚

  2. I could smell it, taste it, feel it – and between the lines, long for it. Thanks…
