The Sun – August 8, 2015

desert dawning
mighty – from the horizon
the sun

winter solstice
visiting the great temple
Ra – the sun

It’s not hard to understand why our ancients worshipped the sun, especially in a desert situation, where the land is flat.  Up comes the sun, after the long hours of darkness, with all the fearful creatures that howl in the night from jackles to lions.

 First of all, there’s a single piercing ray that makes the sands sparkle as the dark horizon seems to be converted made of gold, and then, as so often happens in the desert, the bright golden ball suddenly arises above the land in all its majestic glory! No, it’s not hard to understand why our ancients worshipped the sun.

a new day is born
