The sun crept up to the morning,
Right on time.
It chose a place
To first let the sunshine go.
In a backyard
A dog blinked in the earliest rays
That the sun expressed.
It kissed the dogs coat
Spreading warmth from the tips onwards
Soaking up the dew
The few people up and about embrace the sunshine
Giving day a meaning
The sun starts the clocks ticking
Counting the hours of warmth left
Clear skies, the sun leaps from the horizon
Full of love on this particularly hot day.
The sun kissed all.
The skins of those on the beach
The boy's arm on a train
The girls hair in her English class
The grandmother waving goodbye in the window to her grandchildren
For the last time
Yet it lingered, filling up the wrinkles of age
A warmth to stay forever.
The sun was getting naughty
Licking those without protection.
A red lick to the nose of a small child in a pram
The child feels it, and attempts to lick back the midday sun
Reaching forward, tongue straining
The sun witnessed everyday life and the accompanying emotions
A man smack his wife
Another making love
A teenager hugging their friend
A teacher cracking it
The sun just smiled upon the day
Giving sunkisses to those who stop and welcome it
Late afternoon, the sun yawns
As most people make their way home
To their Family
Joining them on their journey
Crowded, sweaty trains
Banked up taxis
And content cars
The sun kisses the world of each individual
and waves goodnight to the sand and sea
Slipping into limbo for a fraction of a second
To Dawn another day on the other side of the world
To a boy in love, whispering
"You are the taste of summer
You give sunshine a new meaning..."
The girl just smiled
And stepped into the light
Thanking the sun for another day
Of sempiternal sunkisses for the world.
