SUN RISING FOR THE MOMENT




Lotus, cradle on the waters,
your name means beautiful.
The sun rises
from your sweetness.



Sun, you are beneficial to mankind when you rise,
a rest for cattle when you shine.
It is you who have created all things,
you who produce the forage that feeds the herds
and the fruit trees for people,
who creates that which feeds the fish in the currents.
Sun you give air to the embryo in its egg,
nourish the small worms
create food for mosquitoes
the serpents and the flies
give what is necessary to the mice in their holes
and feed birds in every tree.
    --ancient Egyptian praise for the rising sun



Scarab of the heart,
you come into being.
You push the sun
up into the sky.
