Protector of Divine Light

An Ode to the Ordinary

To be placed where Helios strikes down on me—

where their power makes me unable to see,

I fear my skin might bubble from this beam:

I then retrieve for myself a mighty cream.


When Sunna’s wings don’t cast a shade,

nor give any respite—the winds of change,

I take care to know that I have what I need—

I slather it on as I must take heed.


And as ancient Arev hints at immortality,

while reminding me of my reality,

I feel this divine light submerge our in-between.

I thank the gods for the shield of Sunscreen.

    In the brutal British cold that I am in right now, I sooo appreciate this poem full of warmth. Wrapped myself up in it from first line. Thank you so much for sharing! Love your bio too by the way 🙃
