Poem: "The Power of the Sun"

This was written outside the regular prompt calls, during the Great American Eclipse. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette.


"The Power of the Sun"


Nothing there is in this world without balance.
Each thing has its own complement,
as the brightness and the darkness
complete each other.

Without the day,
the night would have no life;
and without the night,
the day would burn away all life.

The power of the sun is too potent
to look upon without protection:
only when the moon covers the sun
can the corona be seen.
