Let the Sun


No words
convey
the wonder
of the yellow
the brightness
of this feeling
no adjectives
no adverbs
entone
the music
of my soul
the lightness
of this singing
The color
the summer
the shimmer
the warm rays
in the affirmative
I simply nod
so speechless
no need

Let the sun.

One of my favorite flowers by far! Oh my .... the words, "let the sun shine bright on my Old Kentucky Home", are echoing in my thoughts! The sun chases away shadow demons and cleanses our souls!

Let the Sun!!

Hi Mama,
I like the sunflower in the sunshine a lot too. I just felt like it is the symbol of everything young and summertime. It seemed like it was time to celebrate summer some.

G'morning Liz

The instant I read the title I started hearing the words to that song The Age of Aquarius. Now THAT brings back some very happy memories of growing up in San Francisco in the days of Flower Power and Haight-Ashbury.

But your words moved me into a different space, one of
the wonder & color & music of long summer days free of grown-up cares. No words needed. Let the sun.
