Gandalf the Sun

Becoming The White was a slippery slope for Gandalf;

it marked the start of an experimentation with the electromagnetic spectrum

and the space-time continuum

and that, children of Middle-earth, is why the Ringbearers’ ship went a little faster and higher

than everyone believes.

And while they are out there in the universe

colonising New-middle-earth and Middle-earth-the-second,

Gandalf (in the middle) is shining bright

to give a little radiation

for the hobbits to make vitamin D

in their new solar system.
