Which One Is Before Whom?


It’s now dead of a night
A little later a sunny day will arrive.

Behind those fiery dark clouds
We’ll find the horizon blue.

After the turbulence ends
The nature will become calm again.

But what makes me thinking on on
With which one it starts at all?

Another egg and chicken game
Can you tell –
which one is before whom?

    Love it Amitava! ! Your sense of humor shines from within this one.
    I like how you used nature so casually, then humorously put the
    chicken or the egg up against which one is before whom. Great
    one, yes, I like it! Thank you for trying - you did it! RoseAnn (Report) Reply

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
