THE EARTH AND THE SKY





In the beginning of  creation
When the Earth and the sky 
Had just been brought to existence
And happened to see one another
 First time in the dead of night.

Enchanted by the majestic  show above
The Earth exclaimed in wonder 
'' Oh ! how rich and awesome you are 
With your enormous, vast kingdom 
Bejewelled with  sparkling diamonds
And divinely designed ornaments! ''

The sky as equally  amazed 
At the Earth's brilliant panorama
Was graceful  and royal in  response 
Complimenting the Earth's emotions

'' I may appear charming to you 
But hey beautiful maiden!
You are far more alluring than I
 With your own perfect spectrum 
 Of colours and living creatures

Whereas I am so dull and boring
With just some shades of blue
And these little bits of silver 
Stuck on me here and there ''

Thus went the dialogue unabated
Each trying to sound more modest
Glorifying the other's merits 
By adding ever new epithets 

Till the night began to recede 
Giving way to golden morning
That made the stars go hiding
To their own secret chambers 

So the duo  as well  agreed
To postpone their secret  meeting
And wait for the night to return
To resume the  sweet talking

It seems that  even to this day 
the rendezvous  continues                    
with no concluding statement
As to who is the better of the two 

But if I were asked to decide 
I would  give equal weight to each 
Since  both of them  look amazing
As complements to one another!
