Oh Mr Sun, you are so much more
Important than most people think
No! I do not worship you alone!
You are there, a mere clone, bearing witness!
Singing praises all day, a symbol is what you are!
But what a symbol you are! A conclusive proof, lighting the world
With the sight of God, granting a vision of the source
How can one be proud, hold doubt, or feel remorse?
When there you are, rising in the East, and settling in the west
The illuminated mind is bound to inquest: what does it mean?
The Eastern sees the world in a collectivized way
All is one - One is all. Interdependence of all. The eastern sun is proximity to the source
The Eastern mind proclaims it in this way: a metaphysical principle determines his sway
But the west, the rest, the sun fractures out
Plato, Aristotle, Moses; personages abound, in the west, individuality is found
The sun sets, forms emerge, the western man reverses
The sun runs its course, a course man too traverses.
How can one not be intrigued by this symbol?
What can be more profound than mans search for meaning?
The sun is light, and the light of the mind is meaning
Meaning in the East and the West differs according to the suns position
Our choices our not brain chemistry, or a mere accident of tradition
But a far more mysterious force with a metaphysical plan
All it takes is awe for the mind to understand.
