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…

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

Hearts Are Stars

Hearts Are Stars ballad

Hearts are stars lost in a tango- between the moon and the sun. Stuck between parallel worlds- they only shine to a smiling moon only to die for a burning sun. Love is an eclipse of a sparkling moon standing

Splitting The Night

Splitting The Night short poem

Pillage started, when there were anti-answers. The trapped light- wanted to be released, from brutalism. When you were nearly drowned, in the multitude of questions, joining the palms, you collect the moments of solitude. You drop a key in the
