Death of a Sun

The first chapter is over
And the curtain would be drawn anytime.
Preparations have started
For writing the subsequent chapter
With invisible ink.

Light penetrates
To decipher phrases
To comprehend subtle emotions
Of science and solitude.

The earth pants in the heart of the cosmos
Breathes helplessly circling in the universe
Till death make us apart.

First chapter is over by the death of light.

Second Chapter

Commotion begins
Confusion starts in the cosmos
What would be the fate of man
Already exhausted by battles and intrigues….

The sun transforms into a red giant
Like a few stars of the cosmos
Who had life
Once upon a time.

Incomparable supernova in the heart of the cosmos!

Second chapter is over with death of man.

Third Chapter

The moment sun is transformed into a red giant
He starts attracting the planets

Once so dear to him
Mercury, Mars, Earth and Venus
Heat vapourises all river,
Disappears as vapour in the atmosphere

My bird is devastated, so are the birds
Tell me O dear
Would scientists be able to discover
Other ways to save our dear earth.

Or will we disappear into another solar system
Inside a planet of some nameless sun, still in his infancy?
In his first chapter?
But for now the third chapter is over by death of the earth.

Fourth Chapter

How can I write the fourth chapter
Since I am dead
Beyond death and dream
Roaming aimlessly somewhere in the universe
Formless but in some form
Encircling and orbiting
Nameless planets
Searching for home
Searching for love
In loveless universe.

Looking for a mate
To continue the creation
Here I live in the creative world
In my creation
Though the sun is dead
I live in my creation
In indelible ink
In the consciousness
In the cosmos
With my wings I fly
I hover everywhere

Though before I hovered,
the fourth chapter was over by death of the sun.
