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…

Kindled Night

Kindled Night short poem

Put off the lantern. I am waiting for the moon’s primal face. The lesser flamingoes were going to shed the pink color. Nude as a python, the kiss of pomegranates, kills by asphyxiation. I suffer in the hands of protests.

Under The Shadows

Under The Shadows short poem

Looking around for a loop of light, a captive throws out his trove of litter and ask for a right to be killed. This was question hour of your conscience. Who would now act as on executioner? Anybody who has

Night Raid

Night Raid short poem

It was night sin of domesticity. Dyed, I am loading the white secret of pain in the hollow of a mayhem. Till every blunder takes a downward flight striping the outsized image of a kill. His flames are now singeing

As the dark night was rising The waves were also raising high and high as if telling me, they won’t let me take a sigh They raised and raised as if they were in a great haste and were treating

A Snowy Night

I could see a light so bright Through the glass door that night It was a sight of pure delight As everything covered in white I felt the ice soft and light As I walked to the right On a
