1.   Stubborn loyalty

single-minded devotion

to your one Sun-god!

2.   Warm worshipping love

for your one-and-only Sun

faithful to-the-max!

3.   Looking unto Him

from sunrise,  noon, till sundown

of your one brief life.

  1. A beautiful haiku, so tenderly written and what a picture that captures the greatness of this “Living Sun God”. Ever stop to wonder in his life span how long the time is really to him? Does he count his life in years or days! Just thinking out loud!
