Homage to the Sun’s Warmth

 

Oh ye Sun

Hail the power of your gentle glow

That even this lake could thaw!


A lifetime of winter

Face cracked from lack of tears

Frozen deeper and deeper

With every turning of winter


Who could believe in Spring 

after so many winters?

 

Heaven’s angels dance

in the halo of your glow.

Each delicate ray of your warmth

gently touching the surface of ice so deep

touch… touch… touch…

 

Til something 

deep beneath the ice

longed

 

longed for warming

longed for coming to life

so simple

 

life taken one breath at a time

life where water can rest still…

or dance with fish, as it pleases

 

This touch so tender

that warms the surface

and reaches life beneath the surface

through God’s gracious mercy

 

The waters turn

And allow that grace to warm

first the top

then the bottom

then the top again

turning

and beginning the movement

of life

 

The rhythm births the lake

coming into it’s own warmth

At last letting the last piece of ice

melt…

 

Now resting this cool lake

So pure

With water to refresh the weary traveller

and that birds may stop to bathe

and all wild things may drink

 

How miraculous this Spring!

Lake bows to the mercy of the Great Sun

so powerful in it’s gentle warmth

 

May we lift up our hands with joy 

to the gentleness

that warms and invokes life!

May we do her honour

By loving…

 

An ever flowing fount of love 

for all.
