Under The Night Sky

Under The Night Sky prose poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

As the day slips behind the cliffs
On the far-off horizon
Taking along its glorious lamp
And all the warm sunshine

The earth looks down wearied
All hustle and bustle comes to close
The world enveloped in darkness
Retires to rest in sleep

But those who can keep awake
Till late hours in the night
Shall watch a sublime tableau
Of celestial bodies in the sky

As the countless tiny stars
Like diamonds scattered all over
Play hide-and-seek all night
Twinkling in their endless domain

Ever watched the night sky
That dazzling expanse of blue-
With an occasional shooting star
Famed for granting wishful prayers ?

With child- like awe and pleasure
I gaze at this heavenly treasure
Feeling blissful , calm and uplifted
Under the spell of this divine splendour !

Have something to say about the poem?

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .

Night short poem

The sun starts it’s descent, the bright golden orange visage encompassing the horizon, Dusk has fallen, day is done, The hustle, bustle of the day ends, Birds chirping retiring to their nests, The weather being clement, The cool breeze wafting,
