The sun rose today
with a flair,
chasing the morning dew
and threatening clouds
that dared to mar a perfect day,

some days feel that way,

so perfect,
the world seems to align
from one pole to the other,

across continents and oceans,
countries and cities,
across backyards and playgrounds,

from one heart to another, to another,

one might stop to ponder
why it feels so right,

then remember the power of the sun,

providing warmth,
and so much more,
for life on earth,

a life so precious,
we get the chance,
every day,
to rise and dream again,

a chance to spread the light
from one heart to another, to another.
