The Sun On My Eyes

A story of how even hard lives get better.

The Sun On My Eyes

I started my life tiny, in a part of my mother rooted in a crack on the earth.

Thin, little and brown with a cloud of white hair on my head

I hugged my mother close one last time until I was ready.

I flew away from my mother on a white fluffy cloud.

I flew high and far to green fields far from what I knew.

When I finally landed I found my home on a patch of green green grass all my own.

I lost my cloud and planted my roots.

I slowly began to extend my stalk into the sky like my mother before me.

In time I grew buds of my own.

At the height of my beauty my flowers opened, shining a yellow almost as bright as the sun.

My siblings shown that same yellow around me and we turned that green grass into a bright sea of yellow.

But just as my mother before me,I closed my buds, my hair turned white, I huged my children for one last time before releasing them to the spring of this world

Our field now bare awaiting the day we bloom again.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
