Brilliant – Jordan Earls

The sun
is a helpless lover.
I know this because,
evening after evening,
she returns
to her significant other,
that dark, mysterious horizon,
and plants the gentlest
of kisses upon his head;
yet every time,
she dissolves
and is absorbed into
his long body
where she disappears
to do what
helpless lovers do.
It matters little
if I understand
what she is doing or
where she has gone,
for every dawn,
she returns
bright, beautiful,
brilliant.
