Poem: In The Midst of Night
In the midst of night,
I glanced through the window Light,
Stars sparkling, dark mysterious moonlight,
Pleasant sight – what a magnificent Delight!
The crisp chilly breeze was smoothly flowing by,
Perplexed eyes stared up high,
Up above the stars – rich, vivid, transcendent white Moon,
How I wish to see it soon!
I keenly observed the Stars in Sky,
For they were Diamonds for a poet’s eye,
Feeling of exuberance when felt silence around,
Abruptly I was taken into rhythm and sound!
Eyes shunned, head leaned over the chair,
Solitary time and poetic thoughts were rare,
Dreamt of old days – memories of Childhood,
Laughs, smiles, giggles and much more good!
Dancing like insane and playing Pilot and Airplane,
Splashing in water with the rhythm of rain,
Making paper-boats was not in vain,
How I wish to live childhood again!
Getting ready for the School,
Pretty exciting and cool,
Uniform ironed and lunch-box packed,
School-bag was heavy and books were bagged!
Running for ice-cream trucks,
And playing Birds and ducks,
Strawberry, mango, pineapple flavours,
The quenching heat of June-July and ice-cream Savours!
Thinking everything yellow and glittery was Gold,
Bitter-sweet memories always tenfold,
Suddenly I felt the crisp chilly breeze,
How I wish time could ever come back and freeze!
I woke up from the memories and observed the clock before me,
I am the Product of my Thoughts is what I see,
I realized how time passes – like salt dissolves in Sea,
Yet, Cherishable memories always remain with thee!
