Language Of The Sun - Poem by Mandira Ghosh

There goes the fusion reaction inside the sun
Dazzling photosphere
During the solar eclipse, when the moon had travelled
Between the earth and the sun
My grandmother saw it in my friend's garden
On a vessel of water as mirror
You said you had measured time
With the coming of the sunspot cycle.
Let heat of the fusion reaction clear
The earth and we recite
From the Vedas
Oh sun purify us
Paradon our sins.
