Surfer's poem: Sun & Shadow

Just after twilight, leisurely, I woke up and looked eastward, Gased at the new born sun, with a joy, writes Jasmeet Kaur, New Delhi.

Just after twilight, leisurely
I woke up and looked eastward,
Gazed at the new born sun, with a joy
Indescribable and was trapped in a trance!

He looked adorable like pure gold.
Laced with butter, with all his sheen
An inviting softness, my eyes devoured
Him with a passion, so splendorous!

Then my eyes caught a hovering shadow
So dark, like a halo. He is flawless
Could it be my mind, reflected as shadow?
In the greatness I saw?
