Mistress of the Sun

Mistress of the Sun

A Poem by Sarah Marie

Her fingers stretch
Like shining rays
Over a naive earth
Which would be in darkness
Without her master's care;
She has learnt well
From the mighty sun,
Her creator, mentor, and lover-
They reign high in the sky,
The clouds all to shield them
In humility's name.
With golden tresses
And scarlet lips
And a hint of pride,
She is the sun's love,
The world their child.
He is the day's god,
His embrace warm and strong
From dawn to noon to dusk;
Beautiful, blonde, and bright,
She is the mistress
And is the guardian
Of the burning sun.

Beautiful imagery in this one. I love the story woven throughout, and the idea of the "mistriss of the sun" is quite poignant. I can see and feel what you are depicting. Nice phrasing, good flow and texture. My only suggestion would be a little breaking up of the one long stanza format...it gets a little tedious in the reading. Overall, very nicely written!!!

This is all my pleasure,my lovely poet :)
There is mythic magic here in your words.. the confessions of light and life, and the fierce love of day. Passionate and powerfully giving.
