Solar tears

by John Ilotan

The sun cries for me
And I burn
To cinders,
To ashes
That blow away softly
In summers
Hot breath

i'm fascinated by this. something so beautiful can be so "destructive"

Such an intensity. It simply burns through the few words you've used. Excellent work, exquisite images.

i like this quick flash of imagery, it makes me think of the transientness of human life, as though watching through a fast motion nature camera from the Sun's perspective

Imaginative. But well, the imagination needs keen observation too. And let the meaning come to you.
