In honor of the summer solstice: the longest day of sunlight of the year.
I stand in its light,
Absorbing its power into my skin.
I am recharged by its warmth,
given by invisible beams.
It is a God,
Ruling over all that lives.
Infinite to our small minds,
It was here long before us,
And will remain long after.
It witnessed our birth,
It will see our rise and our decline.
It shone down on the pyramids newly built,
The Roman’s ships expanding an empire,
And kings of legend’s long forgotten rule.
It grants life and can deal death.
It gives me strength, energy, happiness
as I lift my face to embrace its majestic power.
A truly omnipresent deity.
