It’s useless to fight
against the warmth of the sun.
No good can come of it!
Instead, stretch out and surrender,
fling wide your arms in open embrace,
arch your head back and welcome the loving assault of heat.
Feel the sun convince you
that life is nothing without it;
hang your head down
soak in caresses at the back of your neck.
And as the last drop of tension melts through your toes,
know that release, renewal, rebirth were ever only yours
through the warmth of the sun.
