A Night Under the Stars

A Night Under the Stars long poem

Cant say what i mean here but just so that it doesn’t go obscure, I tell you a story of two feathers and a starry starry night….

A few lines from the song though it cant be related much to the story only that most of the story was a starry starry night….

Starry, starry night.

Paint your palette blue and grey,

Look out on a summer’s day,

With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.

Shadows on the hills,

Sketch the trees and the daffodils,

Catch the breeze and the winter chills,

In colors on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,

How you suffered for your sanity,

How you tried to set them free.

They would not listen, they did not know how.

Perhaps they’ll listen now.

(lines from Vincent – Starry, Starry Night)

Now for the story….

It was a night under the stars

When a story began

Of two feathers that glided across the sky

Of two gypsies who crossed their tracks

Of two lamps who lightened yet enlightened each other

Of two spirits who had just seen their own reflections

Both had their storms of the past

The occasional thunders of the present

But blowing it all aside

They embraced the chill of the future

Love made them fly high

Their togetherness at times risked

Rising above the logics and theories

They floated in the realms of fantasy

Their coats touched, caressing their souls

They flew near they flew far

They ignored the sun, got wet in the rain

They knew their today, didn’t bother about tomorrow

One day the time stopped

A wind brought them close

Blending them into one

But soon it was gone with only dust left to see

The feathers fell to the ground

With a silent thud

Anonymity preached

Distances kept

One fine day a whistle blew shaking both to the core….

A strand of silk

A speck of love

A fragment of life never understood

A beginning to the end

One that was never thought of

An end to the beginning

One that was never fought off

A mighty wind again blew

Taking the feathers apart

A moment of dawn

A moment of dusk

A day of sun, a night of stars

A fortnight of spring

A month of winter

Time had spanned a whole eternity

For now the feathers had gone

Leaving their game incomplete

Strewn worlds apart

Still somewhere around

Somewhere with feelings

Feelings of being loved

Love that started on a lovely night

A night under the stars…

Night Water

Night Water short poem

At the beach, it’s night time about 8.00 p.m. Best time to come few people around. Air is crisp, clean; cool, and the white horses are having such fun. Can sit for hours or gently wade while she softly whispers

Next Night

Next Night short poem

I hate the self-immolation of orange sex. Weather was leaving blue strings on the skin. Redemption was incomplete by sharing the legs Lips will not knead the ears. Like wakng in darkness for a passage to grief. Black moon will

A Somber Night

A volcanic kiss was becoming ungreen. The shark was coming. All night it was raining. The sap was rising and love-farm was deluged. A blue moon walks on the dry eyes. Why the tears had gone to exile? A mole

Stormy Night

Stormy Night short poem

The dark clouds are rolling in quickly, wild wind blows fast and fiercely Many leaves and twigs start twirling around and circling Feeling like Edgar Allen Poe, In the distance I can hear some echo’s Of many dog’s barking in
