The absence emphasizes the value. We can not realize how important a person
close to us is. His/ her presence is enough, so we do not keep
philosophical thoughts. The sun image is negative in the retreating moment;
it is the sunset: “a Perished Sun”. The sun warms us; it is shining bright
and it is a life center. The hugeness of the metaphor “a Perished Sun” give
us the drama of the rupture and leads us to a blank: there is no more
“Sun”, no “center” – “the planets” do not know where to go. “The Golden
presence” is “doubly more” seeing because our eyes is staring at the Sun,
because in our hearts and mind it will never be a “a Perished Sun”. Even in
the absence we still feel its warmth.
