Little Black Spots in the Sun.





Untiring and relentless in his work
Not a moment of inaction shows Helios- the Sun.
Riding his chariot from dawn to dusk,
The fiery Sun God seems always on the run.

His fire was lit when Creation began,
He brightened the Heavens, the Seas and the Lands.
His heat, his zest and his raging flame,
Work with a passion that no one can match.

And yet when sometimes he gets overwhelmed,
A moment he tires, a moment he rests;
His purpose is defeated and darkness spreads;
Little black spots appear in his realm.

From Helios, O Man, you are no different,
Without action you'll have no life, no breath.
And until you live, you must work in earnest.
Coz' the Scriptures say 'Inaction is Death'.

Action'll take you from Darkness to Light,
Make you cross great depths and scale great heights.
And if you don't want any black spots in your life,
Awake from your slumber and work without respite.

So move ahead O Man and get your duty done.
Messages hidden in Nature now you must discern.
Little black spots in the blazing sun,
A vision to view- a lesson to learn.
