The Sound the Sun Makes

White noise from the white light
the music of the sun.
It is a sound to employ, a sound
urging, from the Doppler
pattern of dark and light.

It is the steady cadence of
industrial din a reaching tone
a throaty song, the Hindu Om
from the breath of God.
Light exhaling from an unblinking face.

The sound of a heartbeat instance,
the muted chant in dreams,
the unfilled distance of lovers,
or that pause at first glance.
But it is, at last, only our human pretense.

from “The Keeper of Days”
