Burning Light

A Latta Words

How bright do you burn?

Flames flicker at your surface,

Yet never dimming.

Temperature so hot,

Even the strongest,

Would turn to ashes

In your atmosphere.


Even so, light years away

You sustain life.

Your rays light paths

Walked by both man and beast.

Without you,

Life would fall into darkness

And then into death.


Still, at such great distance,

Your beams burn our skin.

Starting a fire

That spreads like cancer.

How powerful you are,

Floating ball of fire,

Burning light of life and death.
