The short eight minutes that it takes

The sunlight to arrive at earth

Transform the energetic waves

From violent to light and warmth

Spinning inferno, raging sun

Surface boiling with storms and light

First Leaping out, then pulling in

Storms interrupting satellites

A dynamo, the iron core

envelopes the earth within it

Should share shading, shielding shelter

All in only eight short minutes
