It comes out of nowhere,
and as it leaves it springs
aloft like a surfer emerging
from the curl of a wave.

We think our sun is just for us.
Having drawn us close,
and patiently gathered us back
after our bruising.
We love her like a Mother,
and we see our brothers by the light
she sent ahead to guide our way.

But she welcomes all,
embraces all,
and lends all others grace
as they steal away.
