1. The sun shines. Is sau galme
isthe.M.SG sausun galmeshine.3SG.PRES

2. The sun is shining. Is sau ès galmany
isthe.M.SG sausun ès galmanyshine.3SG.PRES.PERIPH

The Present indicative, in its periphrastic form, is formed with a special construction. Old Hellesan used the verb àimer "to have" in Present Indicative (aim, ains, ai, aimam, aimatz, aimant) with reinforcement pronominal suffixes attached (–me –ge –s –mis –tis –eis), which gave, in modern Hellesan, èm "I am" (archaic aime "I-have to-me”), ans or anses "you are" (archaic ànsege "you-have to-you”), etc.
The forms, in order, are èm anses ès aimís antís aimès, and to make the periphrastic Present Indicative must be followed by the gerund of the verb.

3. The sun shone. Is sau galmat
isthe.M.SG sausun galmatshine.3SG.PAST

The verb here is in Tursatz n'epistareu "past of indicative" (Preterite Indicative).

4. The sun will shine. Is sau galmarai
isthe.M.SG sausun galmaraishine.3SG.FUT

5. The sun has been shining. Is sau iai galmar
isthe.M.SG sausun iai galmarshine.3SG.PAST.PERIPH

The verb here is in Tursatz perisauri "past periphrastic", and is formed with a special form of verb ader "to go": ei– (from Peran eiteri “to go”) tied to the archaic forms of the auxiliar verb àimer “to have” in Present indicative (aim, ans, ai, aimam, aimatz, aimant), whic gave im iaz iai am iatz iant in modern Hellesan. These forms must be followed by the infinitive of the verb.

6. The sun is shining again. Is sau ès galmany ardri sarn
isthe.M.SG sausun ès galmanyshine.3SG.PRES.PERIPH ardri sarnanother.M.SG turn

Same as #2, but with the addition of "again".

7. The sun will shine tomorrow. Is sau galmarai nadals
isthe.M.SG sausun galmaraishine.3SG.FUT nadalstomorrow

Same as #4, but with the adition of "tomorrow".

8. The sun shines brightly. Is sau galme clau
isthe.M.SG sausun galmeshine.3SG.PRES clauclear.M.SG

or

Is sau ès galmany clau "the sun is shining bright"

The first sentence is the same as example #1, but with clau "clear" (I don't have a word for "bright" yet), while the second sentence has the periphrastic construction, like example #2, also followed by the adjective.
Note that in both cases an adjective is used (clau) instead of a real adverb (brightly in the English examples).

9. The bright sun shines.
Like the examples in #8, but with the adjective before or after the substantive.

10.  The sun is rising now.
For economy's sake a native Hellesan will use the periphratisc construction here (#2):

Is sau v'ès rusyeny "the sun is rising itself".
isthe.M.SG sausun v'REFL.PRON ès rusyenyrise.3.SG.PRES.PERIPH

Although it's also possible and correct to use the regular Present Indicative and put the word for "now" in the sentence:

Is sau oi rusye dui
