Sun and Earth

by Catherine Chiu

The sun gives light and warmth to the earth
As a form of its love
It does not kiss the earth
In fear of hurting it
So it contents itself by watching
A hundred and fifty million kilometers away
The earth gives nothing back
It even complains
It’s too hot
But the sun can’t stop it
That is it’s purpose
To give heat
It let’s the earth take advantage of it
But it doesn’t mind
In fact it’s happy with it
Just accept it
All of it
I’ll be the sun
And you be the earth
