October Sky

October Sky short poem

Photo by VinothChandar

Look at the sky
It’s rather black in October—
a ruse that it’s about to rain
when it’s only threatening
not intending to do any harm
or good whatsoever.

Look at the sky
keep watching
tarry a little, until your eyes get rid of
the opulence of wanton lights;
you will notice tiny stars
blinking like faint candles
prodding you to believe
that there is a God
forging for you a diadem;
that there is love
as white as snow;
and a hope
that you would still be breathing
yet another day:
