And what of this life?
The mind sets itself, darkening,
wandering through a self-contained maze.
But here’s the sun, shining on my face–
melting the brittle brumal pathways
that detour spirit.
In the middle of the afternoon, on a clear day, the sun shines between the buildings across the street right into my windows. The other day just as I took a break and lay down on my couch, savoring the warmth, this version of John Denver’s “Sunshine” came on the radio.
Which of course made me think of George Harrison’s “Here Comes the Sun”.
Gifts. For this week’s earthweal challenge.
