I HAVE 8 MINUTES 19 SECONDS TO MAKE UP MY MIND

At the edge of the bay

On the white sand of the beach

I contemplate what the sun is to me.

Just force, or light or warmth or energy.

How could it ever equal the greater treasure. 

That is life. It can not.

I wait the 8 minutes 19 seconds it takes light to travel from the Sun to the earth and go home

    • you’re right I think they have been wondering about the sun for years….I wonder if it has a name…I mean Sun!!! that’s a bit understated.

  1. Why Sean, you wrote a lovely poem! And yes, things so unexpectedly can land in the palm of your hand and be just exactly right to say. Who’d have thought, that wonder of 8 minutes and 19 seconds. Brilliant moment, yes, yes!

    Well done Sean! (I’m jealous.)

  2. Thanks Neil………..yes it helped start life here on earth and eventually, at the end, will swallow it up…that last 8 minutes and 19 seconds might be something to witness

  3. You have the heart of a poet and the words of a very sweet enduring man.
    Loved the poem. Photographic Poetry…how wonderful.
    I’m so glad I getting to know you and our little blogger family!
    Love ya

    Hugs

  4. Thanks Vicki you’re so so sweet,

    Yes the words of a poet go straight for the heart……. but poetry sometimes deceives the heart……… nevertheless the inclinations of the heart are always worthy of being nurtured…….

    hugs back to you
