Thee veil thine light in the darkness,
But if ye dost not veil it,
Thy body will shine like the glowing star,
Then might have I say this out of me,
I see why Moses was veiling himself
After he went up to the holy mountain.

The Earth’s art

The sky welcomes the sun.
The sun is a delight to light.
The colourful-warm.

The sea says, hi sky.
For sun evaporates sea,
Call clouds to gather.

The fields of flowers,
Absorb the heat from sky-sun,
Thank you for your kindness.
