Sun Behind the Clouds

WHEN the sun is behind the clouds,
You shudder at the appalling pall of grumpy clouds;
You wail inconsolably in wilderness
If the sun should be this grave, callous and weak-willed.
You curse the sun and swear never to turn to its light
But all the while, the sun rests behind the clouds.

When the sun is behind the clouds
You befriend strangest elements
Overwhelmed with oblivion of the sun.
And the sun is reduced only to a mysterious legend, a distant decayed memory.
Then proudly snuffing the flame of erstwhile passion
You sing with pomp and set the sun on pyre;
You deem yourself a martyr and all your imposed ill-belief of the virtuous sun, a pride-filled martyrdom.
But all the while, the sun squats behind the clouds.

When the sun is behind the clouds
You stonily cut asunder the bond with Him
In a sheer denial that the clouds will ever shrink and recede;
You never believed in the sun and in His utmost scorching orb of passion…
Raise your brow and behold the sky once awhile—
The clouds would have parted in guilt
Then never veil your face in shame and snivel your remorse in sorrowful songs…
And never let your heart burn in pain.
If the sun’s heat is unendurably hot,
Let it burn your heart but in love…
As the sun behind the clouds who always burned for you

  1. Good morning, how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately, it is impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are very small countries with very few population, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this, I would ask you one small favor:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Bhutan? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Bhutan in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Calle Valencia, 39
    28903 Getafe (Madrid)
    Spain

    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally, I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
