Some days the sun rises with a roar
and throws its spears of light to pierce
grateful leaves and flowers. Other days,
the sun is sick, defeated by cloud, a shine
in a minor key. And other days, the greatest
days, the sun goes to war with the mist, which
fizzes as it’s vanquished into shreds of joy.

Perhaps it’s our duty to celebrate the victory
of these sunrises because one day…it might not.
