Where are you Mr. Sun

The lazy sun 

not got up again

missing its arrival

the soul took its trail

and ventured back in dreams 


lost in thoughts 

it awake at noon 

to have dinner this afternoon

isn’t  it early to have dinner ?

the friend asked over phone

the soul replied  didn’t remember when  had dinner last night 


clumsy in his work 

it dropped the pen

lost the only pair of glasses

kept searching and hauling 

only to exclaim it got choked in drain 

slid while washing as it rained


To those sunflowers watching the field

alas the sun wasn’t around

merry go rounds

wondered in crowd 

Will it screech on ground


The rooster ran 

ran in dismay 

there was no sun to greet today 


the houses lit 

not with sunlight 

but burning coal all night 


ohhh dear fiery ball

where are you dancing tonight 

don’t wish to come back on duty again


the skies looked angry and grey 

as they seeped their way

cause they didn’t miss the warm sun

they were angry to do duty again


the souls prayed 

let their fiery ball up again 


the sun which draped the sheet

smiled and smirked 

well you called for the cold days 

so I took my rest 

Now keep searching 

I will keep doing stitching 


when the sunflowers sang 

the sun finally soft hearted again 

while sneezing and snorting 

it replied 

 a matter of few months 

I shall come again

look I got a flu

locked up without clue

in self isolation to heal

Looks like corona got me seal

shall meet you again, its a deal

then we shall have a meal



bless you dear sun 

return to heavenly earth …..

      lol so endearing, I was wondering myself if the sun may be in quarantine. It's dark and gloomy here too. 💖

        Thanks dear Teddy

        Humour to eyes
        But dear to mind

              A wonderful written poetic plea here spillersonsheet, you paint a great scene with your words.

              It may surprise you, I'm a ginger, but I am a fan of the sun, so, sometimes when it's not shining as it should, I get a little miffed just like you do!

              Bravo, and I hope that all is well!

                Thank you dear Ben

                the sun wasn’t around
                merry-go-round's, wondered
                in crowd
                Will it screech, on ground

                The rooster ran
                ran, in dismay
                there was no sun to greet
                *that, day'
                (subtly, deep
                and measured in its questing
                for answers
                to life's, greater
                a really enjoyable read
                especially liked your use of spacing and stanza breaks
                to aid your flow
                and highlight key, meaningful points)
                an impressive first read of the year from you, dear Poet
                thank you for choosing to share
                your poetic journey with us
                it's a privilege to read your poetic growth

                          It surely was
                          It was the missing of sun by different souls
                          How dependent they were on him
                          Finally they said they missed him
