Behold the early dawn , how lovely !
The air filled with sweet melancholy
Spreading his tender rays, the Sun
Rises ablaze , crossing the horizon
In time for his daily rendezvous
Founded on an unspoken vow
With the gentle and serene Moon,
Who’ll depart from the heaven soon.
A tryst, awaited overnight!
Blinding the stars in the morning light,
Consummating with each other’s sight
The Sun and the Moon share the sky
Before they bid a tearful goodbye,
Vowing to meet when dusk arrives.

Inspiration: I have always harboured a special affection towards the Sun and the Moon..even when the scientific me yells at the back of my head that they aren’t anything special, astronomically. One reason for this is my name – my given name ‘Surya’ means Sun and ‘Chandra’ in my father’s name Ramachandran (which is my surname ) means Moon in Sanskrit. That being said, I (‘Surya’) have a special connection with the moon as per vedic astrology ;). Hence my love for those two.
