Private Sun


day dawns bright and clear
a warm presence somehow near
as if a private sun is rising here
in my room

i reach for the burning star
place it where the others are
lest it fly away too far
and seal my doom

upon my shelf sit a thousand suns
i have captured every one
yet the work is never done
to keep the cold at bay

then suddenly i taste another fire
my heart becomes a fiery pyre
i reach for my collection entire
and give them all away
