6 Ways of Looking at the Sun
- Early morning,
the distorted shimmer through your window,
shining on your face.
The glow of a new day.
2. Late February,
the first sign of spring peaks through the clouds,
the snow melts under your feet and at your fingertips.
3. 9 years old,
the yellow pollen of a dandelion painted on your nose,
filled with the bitter smell of soil.
The Warrior of Summer.
4. On top of a mountain,
looking down at the world, looking up at the heavens.
Conquerer of the world, your breath is loud and heavy.
5. The beach,
floating in the ocean, moving with its song.
Feel the sand in your hair,
taste the salt on your lips.
it leaves the sky a watercolor painting.
Red, orange and pink.
It matches the fire in your eyes.
