How Dare the Sun Ascend?

by Ken Sehested 11-01-2011

We all knew it would come.
Someday. Always later.
It comes for us all. Sure.
Of course.

whose silenced breath sears
your lungs with flames of grief
and sobs so immense
you wonder:
How dare the sun ascend?
The stars to shine?
Even the yeast to rise!

I appreciate your making space for Bryan Cones’ “Rites and Rituals” (November 2009). I know and value a number of the resources he annotated.
