“The Sun” or “Childhood memory of summer camps“
The prompt I choose this week for my haibun offering is
We observers, arch our necks to look up at the bright sun passing over head each day. Earth rotates around the sun. As viewed from the surface of our planet, the sun appears to revolve around us. At varying times we follow the sun’s path from the morning side of our vision to the evening side of our vision. In orbital fashion the sun informs and reminds us that we exist … just because … while nourishing, with sunshine, along the way of circular travels.
When we speak of the circle of life, we think of ecology and the delicate balance of nature (all life) on our planet. And yet in truth, when we look up to gaze on ‘our sun’ each day; life as we know it and it’s continued existence, is completely dependent upon this shining star in the sky. The circle of life is the sun, and we merely spectators waiting upon the event horizon.shining sun above viewing eyes of creation the circle of life ~
