Sun Kisses

RDP Wednesday: FILAMENT

How romantic, I thought on the day I saw the Sun reach down and touch the face of Anubis in Pioneer Square.

The soft rays must have felt warm and gentle as they fell upon the giant statue’s cold and stoic face.

It was a sweet notion I have kept and think of when I look up into the sky

and I thought it was even a loving gesture until I saw what a solar filament looks like

as it snakes its way around the Sun and now I think I that my notions may have been a little silly.

It’s goes without saying that if the Sun tries to kiss you, love and affection isn’t part of

the the gesture.
