Until – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

VJs Weekly Challenge – Sun

“Even the sun directs our gaze away from itself and to the life illumined by it.”  Eberhard Arnold


The sun is just the sun
so far as the eyes are concerned
until the sun meets
horizon or cloud,
and every hue erupts,
bathing hearts with flutter,
even more so when the
sun meets your hair
offering highlights and
directing my gaze
to you.

  1. Love this Paul – the quotation, and how the poem illustrates it – your description of the sunrise/set and the light illuminating love.

    Beautiful! I think this is my favorite: “and every hue erupts bathing hearts with flutter” It all has a lovely and soft feel to it ❤

  4. There were bells on a hill
    But I never heard them ringing
    No, I never heard them at all
    Till there was you
