Ode to the Sun

When you’re close to the horizon
That’s when I like you best
Whether it be in the mornings
When you rise in the east
Or the lovely evenings
When you set in the west.
When you cross that natural line
That’s when you truly shine bright
It warms my heart each time
You turn on dawn’s charming light
Or paint the blue, cloudy skies
Glorious colors in the night.

A Battle with Time

The clock ticks away like
It doesn’t give a damn whether
You make it or miss.

Its allegiance is hitched
To everyone or everything else –
Never with you.

So you wage a war against it,
Defying its natural flow,
Keeping with your own rhythm.

You never win.
