To the Southern sky

4 October, 2020
One day I was gazing at the Southern sky,  
Wondering whether she is nature’s Picasso.  
I saw red, yellow and orange shades spreading throughout the hemisphere,  
As if Apollo, the Sun God is pulling his Chariot away.  
Sometimes you look so dull, as if the world has lost her colours,  
“Battering thunder and Lightning?”  
What made you so angry to be like that?  
Now look at you sky, being calm as if nothing happened,  
Changing your mood like that time to time.  
Is it because you are a marvellous creation of nature?  
Or is it because “changing” is the nature’s law?
