Solar storm


(Written on 8th march ,2012)
Peering into the unending sea
searching for a sign
clouds have scattered in their hunt
for finer hills to climb
The sun stares back,
not saying what he really feels
but I do know that he is throwing
flaming flares at me
cannot look at his golden scars
nor ignore the fire he harbours within
He sails across the lazy blue
leaving turbulent, orange beams
as if puffing on a Cuban cigar
and letting off some steam
His nonchalance pains me much
he shouldn’t saunter with that stoic sway
but maybe he doesn’t know about
the solar storm he is throwing our way
