The Sun

The sun

Today i spoke to the life giving sun
The sun, smiling with moon face, spoke to me
The sun told me this time it will be a good run
The sun ordered El Nino to set me free
El Nina is coming to allay my fears
The sky will welcome her with rivers of tears

The sun asked if i had spoken to the soil
And made sure my mechanical friends were oiled
there was not much the sun could do
To ensure the earth was on my side too
I assured the sun that the earth was mine
The fertility, virility and permeability was fine

I told the sun to tell the moon to respect the clouds
To hide behind the curtain of moisture but still be proud
coming out briefly to assure the owl there's life after the storm
not to cause a high tide to upset El Nina's coming home
Yeah, today I spoke to the sun
I m going to the farm with El Nina arm in arm to have fun

    Beautiful metaphorical expression. El nino is pun or...
    Enjoy you and El nino in the farm... Clouds will never disturb. ..... good poetry.
