Alone (Posted on 2006-07-10) Difficulty: 4 of 5
I am alone,
I am bright,
Yet I am surrounded by black.
I am alone,
And I miss my family,
Yet I am surrounded by my Kin.
I am alone,
With no one to talk to,
But humans are all around me.

In terms of the first two lines we are looking for an object which is alone and is bright. As a celestial body we know that the Sun is indeed the lone star inside the Solar System, and is bright since it emits light.

In terms of the third line, the Sun is indeed surrounded by the blackness of space.

In terms of the fourth through sixth lines, the Sun is indeed surrounded by its kin, which are the other stars. it cannot communicate, since Sun is an inanimate object. Moreover, in terms of the 8th line, the distance between the Sun and the nearest star is too large to effect any viable mode of communication.

Finally, in terms of the last line, the planet Earth revolves around the Sun and the humans reside in earth, and so, the humans are
indeed all around the Sun, that is, revolving around the Sun.
