Sun and Summer

For hundred days every year up above in the home of Sun
Occurs a strange fight between the Sun and his sweet heart
Fierce is the sun for outside world fears his wife inside the house
Soured relations soar to the sky heralding Summer with fiery will

The Sun is severe so is the heat
Intolerable is the intense of the fright
Streets wearing a deserted look
Nature showing its non-friendly might

Notorious summer numbing the spirits
Sultry climate squeezing the energy
Sweat and heat pricks puncturing the moods
Thirsty throats trembling for water

Tap waters threatening hot
Walls and floors fuming with heat
Winds causing worrisome heat waves
Hell is nowhere its right here

Humid conditions heat-wave holocaust
Power and water perched on shortages
Political gimmicks punching the public
Old and sick suffering the sun stroke

Early morning enraged Sun vents his anger erupting the heat
Mid-noon Sun mad with fury punish the earth with miserable might
Dusk times Sun in demonic mood delivers a blow of devilish climate
Content with the torture caused till then retires the Sun with sparkles in eyes!

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
