A Poem by Rumi
O Sun, fill our house once more with light!
Make happy all your friends and blind your foes!
Rise from behind the hill, transform the stones
To rubies and the sour grapes to wine!
O Sun, make our vineyard fresh again,
And fill the steppes with houris and green cloaks!
Physician of the lovers, heaven's lamp!
Rescue the lovers! Help the suffering!
Show but your face - the world is filled with light!
But if you cover it, it's the darkest night!

The poem is usually posted between 10pm the previous night and 9 am on the day of the poem. It could be your own or someone else's. It should be something to do with nature, and ideally it should have something to do with the particular day.
