Sun Alive

Sun Alive
    by Amy Swanson   

        on my face

forget yesterday

               today is new

it can be 

the best of the rest 

                  of my life...

    you inspire
         my essence of being

and touch

 ~ kiss ~

this burdened soul so softly


              to rise 


golden to my core
    lovely uplifting
        your generous rays 
              soft-filled with light
                 dance gently on the water






I feel a peacefulness
    just being in your warmth
        eyes closed, heart beating faster from the heat
            bestowed on me 
                 your gift
                       of light


                             I breathe in your light

                             (I breathe out my dark)

I am


this morning


I am

    Dear Amy, Very inspirational poem! Isn't it a shame that some folks live in darkness, never knowing the joy that sunshine and true love can bring? I'm enjoying your work! Thanks for your comments on Brian Strand's footle. He weighed in on it, and he seemed pleased. It's nice getting to know you. Love, Carolyn

    The sun serves well as a wake up, as it gently kisses us with warmth and embrace of its rays. A lovely read that truly captures the needed beauty of the sun. Michael
