a sun song


sunrise from beneath the wings, photography by ssj

a sun song

sun lifts from beneath
steel wings of anxiety,
pensile promises.

come what may this way
stretched-out arms embrace the sky,
a new day arrives.

  3. Yes, uplifting, just like the wings of the plane. Love that reflected strip of sunlight, and the way you captured it as metaphor in the poem. Very enjoyable, Said. ☀️

    • Thanks, Steve. I sure did love that strip of sunlight as well upon realizing that the plane’s engine was not on fire. It actually looked more menacing when I first lifted the window shade & was greeted by that sight 🌞
