"Arushi Ahuja"
It's not sun. It's not edited. It's lightening in the setting sun. Caught on camera overhead Kochi.

Satin white flashes
Of light with peels of thunder-
Hiding behind the clouds!

***

The dance of the Gods
No human shall enter
Lightens the earth beneath.

***

Lit up by fire from heaven,
A moment of beauty-
And then just darkness.

***

A beautiful thunder
Terrifying so many of us-
Then Lightening of hope!

  9. Some say all of nature has a soul - that bit of hope that flashes as lightning in the dark.
    I like your interpretations of white satin and gods dancing.
