Sun — Where Have You Been?

3 Comments

I’ve been waiting in the cold

dark, forever, it seems, at least

to feel your warm hand upon my body.

Unbury me from this hovel of dampness

that infects my bones, my joints.

I need your electric balm to invigorate

my mind, my soul.

This gray shadow has cast its’ net

too long, too far.

It has swallowed

too much of this earth

causing a great bulge

in yesterday’s news.

One – sided blues

that propagates itself

over the tops of its citizen’s moods

clamping down hard with its monotonous recital.

Sun! Unleash your soothing rays

for we cannot wait

patience has seen its overdue days.

  1. This is an ode to Tropical Storm Debby that has haunted our world here in Sarasota for days now!

  2. Yes, we are citizen’s of the sun, as you so poetically point out in “Sun– Where Have You Been?”

Write. Talk. Tell me everything.
