Sun’s Wisdom #nature #poetry #photography

 

cant catch fall

Calendar’s clock

autumn sets nature’s pace

I can’t catch her

end of the tunnel

Frenzied is my pace

am I going the right way

sunrise perspective

warmth of dawn

 

Sun sheds light

collecting shells for answers

tide caresses day

The prompt this week at Poets United is “Energy/ Vitality.”

“Pointing to another world will never stop vice among us; shedding light over this world can alone help us.”
Walt Whitman

Where do you get your energy from? I get mine from the sun (especially at the ocean.) It’s that calming energy that gives perspective rather than that rush about flailing for answers.

You always were so clever

so out of the box

and I was always so grateful

for the things I was taught

people are different

in so many ways

you study volcanoes

I think of sun’s rays

your mind is a wonder

as I see the gears turn

and I love to watch them

and in that way I learn

Autism’s a label

for some it seems bad

but look at the child

and all that he has

I’ve spent much of my life with children with special needs. I have been enlightened by a precious light and love that I have been showered with. Brian is one boy that was so enthusiastic and loved life. He spoke with his feet and his smile radiated something like the sun. When he passed away as a young adult, I felt the world had lost a sunbeam.
