Solar Orison

You teach me, Sun, it’s wonderful to shine,
though human beings shine differently than you.
I know your light’s more luminous than mine,
but I hope that it shines through things I do.
You also show me that it’s good to warm,
for life could not exist without your heat,
and though my heat is of a human form,
I hope that it may warm the ones I meet.
You keep me humble, as the things I’ve done,
and all I’ll do, burn like a fleeting match,
compared to you, dear life-sustaining sun,
of light and warmth I can’t begin to match.
I know I’ll never match your light but pray
that I may shed some light as though a ray.

House of Parliament Sun, Claude Monet, 1903
