I feel powerful

when I position the sun

and have it rest

newly hatched

in a tree-top nest

in the foreground of the

blue beyond.

We all have that power,

you know,

not just photographers.

The light is always present.

It is us who turns away

and back again,

spinning and revolving

on our individual and shared axes.

In the palm of our hands

is the glow we can hold

of either the sun or the moon

with a simple perspective shift.

Reach for it now

with both hands

and gently cradle it.

Let it soak in

to your soul

and light every dark


We can all

hold it at once,

even share it.

The light is ever-present.

Restore your mental energy

with it.
