People of the Sun

We were beholden to the sun
kneeling at the altar of its riches
allowing its warmth
to envelop and overtake
to flow through and to become.
So that when the night would arrive
the dark
the cold
we might have some protection against it.

Of course
that was not the case.
What comes will come
whatever preparations we might have made
would be secondary
with us
foolish enough to believe
that what little we wanted
was everything.
