My salutations to the mighty Sun
who shines ever so bright as never
breathing in new courage and hope
to every soul that looks up to him.
He is always there when you need him
unless he rests in the depths of the night
His first ray is the daily prompt by which
all beings get up and set themselves up.
His appearance from the mild to the fiery
for all, he appears as a true benefactor
without him, won’t the world be all gloom?
lost in darkness and devoid of very life.
He is concerned about every one of us
his duty being to sustain us in all walks
he shrinks in size but never shuns his work
days and nights, a result of his progress.
He shows how every rise has a gradual fall
how the mild become fiery before they sink
without him, we would drop dead by work
as we would never know when to take rest.
P.S : Thanks are due to Rupali who blogs at mazeepuran.wordpress.com for inspiring me to write this with her above clicked picture.

Your salutations to Sun God make interesting read carrying blissful messages. Enjoyed reading. Surya Devta or sun god enjoys unique status in Hindu iconography as the visible divine personality. His celestial arrival frees a devotee from ritualistic customs or caste-based barricades and taboos to have an independent face to face obeisance and worship without the medium of priests and their rituals.
Very true Promod. He is the only accessible and visible god.
Beautiful poem. Love the words – he shrinks in size but never shuns his work.

Wow, thank you so much!
A lot of brightness in this poem, Sunith. The Sun indeed he shrinks in size to sustain life on this planet. That in itself is a lovely message.
I have simply loved this beautiful poem.

Sun’s appreciation for this poem will be there for sure.
