The sun, sleepy, stirs gently
peeking from her bed, childlike
Her hair cloudy curls mussed
From dreaming, her smile bright
blaze in aurora colors, a greeting. Her friends spin gaily around her. The sun, awake stands glowing
watching the dance, bow, flourish
Wallflower at her own ball
At a pace of her choosing. Time flows, the world passes her by. Sun, brillant sentinel
Gaze on the children below
They play, growing and learning
Under her stately eye, but she is kind.
Gentle warmth of a mother’s embrace Stars born, the universe expands. She, weathered, gleams radiance
Evening, her brightness is dimmed
She makes her way to her bed with Tired, slowed steps of an elder. in glint of twilight, she slides to dreaming.
