Chasing The Sun

Fireworks & frightened birds
framed against a startled sky
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
Every one 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 today’s 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
