Sun Worshipper
by Dr. Uma Asopa
Bookmark and Share
  Wherever she walked
the sun moved ahead.
It got hotter with the day;
she followed the lighted circle.
 
She yearned to see the face
that lights the world.
The red-yellow aura enticed her.
 
With her naked eyes
she looked at it sometimes,
not caring she could lose her vision.
 
She would bow seven times
in postured reverence -
chanting several names
rhymed in the glory of sun.
 
The quiet of dawn
strengthened her resolve.
In her closed eyes, she held her fascination -
through her veins, felt a rush intense.

The thought of Kunti
and her boon
flashed through her trance.

The winds went silent.
Sky watched her composure.
She held her breath -
could she become one with the sun?
 
She opened her eyes.
The sky was bright, and
winds played with her pallu
She still stood on her earth.

She was glad she was no Kunti
to be blessed with Karna.
