A Brief Apostasy

Beside the lake I felt the spinning sun
Exploding from a billion miles away
She touched my skin as I commenced my run
A circle in the middle of my day
Insistent warmth progressed to fervent heat
I took my orbit twice and then once more
My will propelled my legs, propelled my feet
While sweat like blood was drawn from every pore
I cursed the sun in silence and aloud
Fatigued, I stopped and drank a bottled drink
I saw the shadow of a passing cloud
And thought the thought that all blasphemers think
That somehow my desire resides above
The source of life and light, the source of love
