Dream Maker Sunrise
By Angelina Schneider
The body of the sun has not yet breached the angled plateau of the eastern horizon
Its sinewy glow has bent itself slyly around nature's curves and masses
Kissing the faces of a few prominent surfaces
Which seem to stand taller almost proud
Honored to receive the first warm blessing the sun has to offer today

The sunrise is a slow going amusement ride
A lazy river at the water park
Slow and unrushed the sun travels its course

The rest of us stand at attention
Humble paparazzi
Waiting to catch a glimpse of what this most famous celebrity is wearing today
Click Click
Waiting with two cameras to catch the blinding orb as it crests

The moment is a minute away
A glance at its eastern progress is momentarily blinding
The sunrise is arriving
A simple blue sky
A few feathery clouds
Birds chirp louder in their anticipation
Find their spot in the treetops
It's Here!!!!

The warmth is immediate
Distant rock formations brought into perspective
Jagged, kissed with green edges
Given shape by the light of a new day

This ancient game between earth and sky
Land is a humble friend of the sun
The sun a wise oracle
Tending to itself with grace and deliberance
Its only mission, its single task
To shine
Day after day, millennia after millennia

What other planets have seen a sunrise today?
How many other creatures arose to greet the day with me?
What faces were illuminated with mine?

Is the sun ever jealous of the moon
The other wondrous orb
The cold rock, puny in comparison
So small earth's gravity has stopped it from spinning
Domecticized the moon

Moon is the equivalent of earth's lap dog
Goes where we go
Tethered like a leash to earth's gravity
But not the sun

The sun is the old bubbling toad of our universe
It seems to go no where
So massive is its molten flesh
Even millions of miles away it can burn my own skin

Earth is tethered to it
Its faithful obligated companion
We are codependent upon it
No amount of psychotherapy or 12-step programs to cure us of our dependence
This mystical drug that is the light
The rays
The fire
The glow
The life and the death of us.

We worship the sun with such little reverence
See it rise but a few times a year
Reap its gifts daily
I am blessed to be here for it's unveiling on the beautiful April morning in Sedona.

Amen
