We are the Sun


i circle the sun
warmed, no, heated
to fiery depths,
illumined, inspired
to wake
i soak it in
close my eyes
and see the sparks
that will carry me
through the darkness
i take my place
in the world
of things
i reach for the
hands of all beings
i am the sun
as i watch our light
grow brighter
we are the sun
the shape of hope. – TS
