Agninatchathiram


A fierce sun comes out 
during the first week of May 
lasts till the the third week.
21 days steadfast 

 Known as Agninatchathram,
where Sun burns like fire
scorches the skin, sucks 
the water out.

Man remains a shell of his self
while e earth appears 
parched, broken turns 
lifeless.

Trees look pale, flowers
shrink and droop, dogs 
go panting with, tongues 
hanging out.

Sun turns merciless 
Its brilliance blinds,
The rays penetrate
 prick and hurt.

Abundance  of heat suffocates,
so to say, the giver of life
flouts and plunders without
concern. 

Nature  behaves like a villain
Attacks, slaughters, turns 
the world upside down.
It is  but natural.
