Looking Through…

The Sun shone dimly,

The distant horizon,

Long shadows being drawn,

Birds getting the hint,

and heading towards home,

flowers getting upset,

for parting with the Sun,

the water looked murky,

for the lack of infiltration,


He sat by the tree trunk,

with his eyes on the Sun,

a competition of sorts,

who blinks first?

in the end,

the Sun just ran away,

dipping below the horizon,

ashamed of blinking first,

he didn’t know,

the other set of eyes,

were looking through him,

not at him.
