Trembling Earth

The tired sky stared at the earth

having nothing to give

Bereft of energy

and spirit


The warmth of the earth

turned into a burn

The sun pierced the land

cutting it to dry pieces


Unable to bear the crushing weight

of so many beings

the earth shook

and erupted one day,

which the world called earthquake


The sky hid behind clouds

too powerless to help

the trembling earth

Make Way

The sun was there for everybody,

overstaying, sneering at every living

and non-living thing


As the clouds moved in

to grace the thirsty

earth with water,

the sun stared them away


When the moon tried to

bath the land with her glow,

the sun angrily glared her away


Finally, the stars pushed themselves

forward, taking with them the night,

and the sulking sun was involuntarily

pushed back
