Each Day

Each day …


Dear sun, I pity you

You unfortunate soul

Each day coveted anew

A prayer, a thank you, a stroll,

How do you love from afar?


How can you, when you’re busy

Paving paths, and lighting halls?

It’s mutual that you miss me,

I’ve seen you in withdrawal

Mad enough to sidebar


And tell the storming clouds

To roll on in, and stay

For a while, and enshroud

Me, block me from your rays

Is that really who you are?


Spoiling me a moment,

Outside those tearful squalls

that fell without notice

no recompense my dear ball

You light bearing vanguard


Marred by your existence

To tide amidst the stars

And live unrequited love

Hence you are who you are

Lost to midnights and memoirs.

    Deep thoughts of one in the midst of anger, sorrow and frustration? That is how I felt it. Very well penned, Paul.

    Sad for the sun which does not know the meaning of love, by our standards, and frustrated at the times when we need the sun to shine and it is hidden behind a rainstorm. You were correct Phyllis. Thank you so much for your thoughts, i do appreciate them so.

    Nice perspective and well penned and evocative. The truth is the sun always shine, just as brilliant as it has every been; its just at times, clouds can get in the way. Lovely peace, very much enjoyed Paul.

      True. Sometimes it seems to go into hiding at the worst possible times. Thank you so much for your kind words my friend

    We all need the sun to survive and often miss it when it hides behind a cloud or on a rainy day but we complain when it is too hot and scorching. Poor sun knows no love. Good work, Paul.

      Exactly. It just seems to go into hiding always when you need it to be shining in the sky. Thank you so much for your kind words John.
