A WISH TO THE SKY- A poem

Updated on February 2, 2013

The city went black

On a cold yet breezy night

Off we walked

To view the theme of the night sky



The moon hid behind the clouds

Like it was aiming to give us a surprise

With just one star

It was a mysterious yet beautiful night



Soon, to our delight

Something popped up afar

Almost out of sight

Like another star it glowed

Like another wish it shined



Believing it’s a shooting star

I asked for a wish

To my revelation

Even more showed up

Like the sun it rose

Amidst the green



Wishing and wishing

My wish list came blank

With even more popping up

Filling the sky

Enhancing the beauty of the night



An hour passed

The sky went empty again

Like it once was



All the weird thoughts

Ended in the dawn

Figuring out what it was

The wish lanterns

Which hopefully would fulfill my wishes
