Evening After

Evening After short poem

The winged commuters return
to their warm cosy nest
for their lovely night rest
it is turning cool after the day long scorching burn.

the rim of the endless sea turns red
the sinking sun casts long yellow shadows
the cattle return after the graze in meadows
the little ones turn to their bed.

the cool night breeze comes up with the moon
I long for it after the heat of the noon
it is wonderful twilight, golden twilight
but lo…soon it gives way for the night

the moon with her starry friends
light the blue sea of sky above
young couples in the bowers
whisper their love….

and I sing with all my mind ..
the song of eternal love…
to my dear one far off…

Lovely poem, after the heat of the afternoon sun, the body yearns for some soothing balm which comes in the form of the mystic moon, making the atmosphere romantic, the milky moon casting its milky shadow and the lonely heart remembers his far away love and starts singing the song of eternal love, wonderful poem, yes the moon has always been the symbol of love, specially for those who have far off love and visualize their lovers face in the moon……nice short poem, loved reading it

Be my soul in outrageous sunshine of knowledge. I need a shade of tears. The barrels were still smoking after the war. I will not wake up in morning. Lightless the day will mourn for the fallen moon on the

Evening Eye

Evening Eye short poem

Curled up in the blanket of dim-light hours, Shadows overreach, closing the gap of every enclosing hour. The gentle waft that had me swoon , Drew me into a cup of steaming brew, Lips damp with the brush of froth,

I could cause a root to bloom or a bird to plummet in showers that drenches my pallid skin a toe or a foot The uneasiness that pecks me the dullness that I wear my skin, is you The darkness
