The Daily Prompt – Scorched!

The Scorching Sun

So high in the sky

Yet, very near with her burning ignition

I soared through the pains

That pierced my ebony skin

As I tread heavily on the earth

In search of a livelihood


Oh, I remember now


I groaned in suffocating torture

As beaded sweats trickled down my chin

I perspired and respired fiercely

To the flaming heatwave

Dejection and dehydration found me

And they left me dry and thirsty


How ironical

To cry aloud when the sun blazes in fury

Yet, dismal when her shine shuts down

And her glow hibernates

But for a moment

What can we do?

Without the brightness

Of the sun


In response to the Daily Prompt – Scorched.

Peace and Love!

      1. Yes Aaron. I have become so busy and finding very little time to focus on this blog. Hopefully, things will relax soon and I’d be back fully. Thank you for asking.
