Skywatch Friday - the sun/Son


Maybe it is no coincidence
that sun and Son sound the same.
Life-giving warmth, energy,
both eternal and ever rising
to our need.
Each new morning
I bend my head
towards the Son
as a flower bends its head
towards the sun.
Listening, reaching
for all I cannot exist without.

The photo and poem go together so well. you have a gift for pairing them. Today, my favorite lines are "both eternal and ever rising
to our need."

Have a good day.
