Sun emerging in measured time
pulling the diffuse light spread across the horizon
into a focused beam.
So like our lives, emerging from the vastness
of the beginning of time
to experience thought, see beauty, know love.
forgive our prideful thoughts
that we can know or understand the rhythm of life,
calm our restlessness,
allow us to live in the miracle of your creation.
Sun’s rim setting below the horizon
shooting streams of light and untold beauty
leaving behind a trail of light
pointing to a new day in your timeless universe.
