the dark spots on the sun

sometimes sun
blooms dark spots, cooling
his burning
by degrees
tempering infinite chained
burning for moments

do we cool,
lover, in this way?
our first heat
damping back
shifting to the controlled burn
of a lasting flame?

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    We stew our loves
    Raising the heat to a boil
    Later, reduced to a low simmer
    Slow cooker
    But the aroma
    Is appetizing

    Love it Susan…and having been away I now find here what looks like to me beautiful growth– writing, just trying out new style or personal maybe– but whatever it is I appreciate the change I read…so cool…love your writing Susan!
