A Love Story - Sun and Earth


Like an enchanting flower her desire blooms
As to the rising sun, the pupil zooms
To the exuding warmth of the golden Ra
Smiling at providence from her seat afar
She hangs by a thread, a tapestry of god
As the wings flutter in a celestial applaud
Airborne creatures entranced to the shimmering sun
Singing heroic psalms of the chosen one
Mother earth inebriated by her seeping charm
Intoxicated is her heart as sunbeams swarm
For she is as indomitable as the Giza pyramid
She is as courageous as a matador in Madrid
She seeps passion like the aura of a seductive Venus
She magnetizes the soul like a Mozart's opus
As mother earth circumambulates her shrine
She bequeaths an unparalleled effulgence of sunshine
Distant lovers harboring dreams of a fiery kiss
Yearning to consummate a love of unadulterated celestial bliss
Alas, that’s not how the legendary story parts
But as star-crossed lovers with two broken hearts

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
