It is the same Sun that greets me every morning. I don my eye-glasses, and strain the eyes to see if there are any additional rays in the aura around it. A year has passed, and it should reflect in the Sun’s achievements – like a new medal.
I think of all the shades of dawn, and their Pantone nomenclature. They have chosen a sombre grey and lemon yellow to acknowledge the pandemic, but couldn’t resist a Blush Beauty and Winery in the summer/spring palette.
Dear Sun, are you listening? I would like you to add a new colour to brighten up the world’s moods. Can the birds look brighter as they take a view of the world below?
