Poem: Solitude of Grace - Once In a Blue Moon


The sun has arbitrarily bowed

Down the violet-coated Clouds

With departure framed waves

Encompassing luminous Rays,

As I sit by the window

Watching the dawn emerge,

There lies a perfumed silence in my room

That’s broken by the ticking of clock

Perchance amidst my Heart,

A peculiar numbness rests

As an empty vessel must feel

And photos captured in reel

Deep inside, poetry is clove hitched

In the midst of my Heart

And my trembling lips are stuck

To extract voluptuous words

For I’ve battled for hours, darling

Yet fluttering like Caterpillars

They deny settling on the white

Blank paper enveloped on my lap

Memories smitten by your Love,

Vigour and dynamic persona

Have kept me awake all night long

So much so that I blush in hush

If solitude is that intoxicating

Then I’d yearn to march endlessly

To catch one little reminiscence

Of our heartiest conversation

How I long for a Rendezvous

With this sumptuous solitude

To write a chronicle of our fondness

But your Name itself suffices.

Nice poem. :-)

In solitude with your grace,

i am sleepless.

And this night appears twinkling with stars.


it is loneliness all along.

And this night is but, dark.
