Poetic Journeys #2 - Solar Adoration

Poetic Journeys

The man, a living solar cell,
absorbs a stellar energy
and stores it in the body’s well
to draw upon daily.

The star’s rays fall upon our bodies;
they crystallize in our own blood,
repeatedly renewing us
as resurrection would.

With its energy we digest,
metabolize and procreate.
By its rays the race is thus blessed
to live, to love, to wrestle Fate.

O Starry Fire, I here acknowledge
Thy power to save, Thy power to damn
and that by Thy Light I am empowered
to be the Being that I Am.
