Sun’s Secret Affair

I watch and wonder

as the sun sets.

Where to it goes

before it sinks?

When it hides itself

behind the clouds,

for a fraction of time,

where to goes the sun?



too overwhelmed

for parting with its lover.


it kisses the sky

behind the clouds

before it bids adieu

before it finally sinks.


On countless evenings, I have noticed it. And have found myself curious. 
‘Why does the sun hide behind the clouds before it sinks?’
And I wrote on it.
But the title’s  a makeshift as I’m lost for a befitting one.
Any ideas for a better title?
What do you think of ‘Sun’s Secret Affair’?
