THE DAY THE SUN CAUGHT FIRE

THE DAY THE SUN CAUGHT FIRE

A tiny seed in the flower of eternity
Murmurs in the long sleep of a lifetime
Many a dreams pass through
Million nights flash across
Thunderclouds and nightmares gather
On wind chiselled rock faces
Awaiting the birth of a new sun.

Where shadows fail and lights multiply
Sedimented thoughts in the shallow waters of the heart
Encrusted with cholesterol and worn-out dreams
Long for a spark of life
To set in motion the sleeping planets and their smaller moons
To open up the volcanoes belching clouds of ammonia
To warm up the primordial soup
To start chain reactions in the chemistry of life
To ignite the explosive sun
My trembling fingers
Hold a box of matches
Damp with my tears.
