Chasing The Sun

Fireworks & frightened birds

framed against a startled

a fleeting canvas, a tableau of life


Fireworks & frightened birds,

framed against a startled sky

moment of celebration, moment of strife.


I still hold the remnants of that picture

that time erased from the sky.

Was it just nature or sublime scripture?


I still hold remnants of that picture

that time erased from the sky

Played out for my questioning eye


Coz I have seen life in crowded places

Everyone visits, no one stays

Feeling trapped in the lights, lost in unlit spaces

in between being someone and being a face


Coz when our yesterdays are gone & our todays are almost over

when the need for some new journey has just begun

We all leave home, but for how long is what really matters

Coz’ time is the actual distance between people, when one is chasing the sun


-Suraj Mani

"Time is the actual Distance between people"
