April Create: Prayers to the Sun God

0 Conversations

A shaft of sunlight pierces clouds,

bestows a strange serene beauty-

silver tints on brown floodwater.

People lean from first-floor windows,

pray the Sun God restores life

to a world soaked and strewn by chaos.

Trees salute heaven with broken branches,

invoke the sun’s power to revive

bedraggled leaves and weakened roots.

Drowned landscapes start to stir,

cast off blankets of turgid water,

litter of wrecked cars and shattered lives.

Tired firemen rise from pumps,

to bless returning sunshine, watch

familiar streets emerge from darkness.
