An Ode To the Sun

On this day, we acknowledge you
The bright all-pervading presence in the sky
Warming all living beings with your rays of light
Lending us energy, strength and sustenance

We thank you for a bountiful harvest
For watching over us with care
For the light that brightens up our days
For the beauty you lend to the sky in all your hues

Fresh sugarcane, young turmeric and bananas
Pots overflowing with pongal sweet and savory
We offer these to you in gratitude
For the nutrition your light provides

May all beings on earth receive gifts of your generosity
May all have overflowing happiness and prosperity
May all lead simple lives, enjoying nature’s bounty
May we never forget to thank you
