Night


The symphony has started

and the darkness does descend

the world succumbs to quietude

the day has reached its end

 

The nighttime woods are glittering

and offer up a show

a dazzling performance

by the fireflies, aglow

 

On the distant hills around

Tiny flashing dots abound

There’s something special in the sight

of cozy darkness specked in white

 

In the earth and sky above

the spectacle, I truly love

my heart lays still as I rest my head 

and all my troubles seem to fade away

One day when I woke up at night!


One cold, sunny day
When it was raining outside
the glorious dark brightness
was perky and sublime.

The midnight that evening-
the morning at noon –
was late in October
One May in June.

I sat where I stood
as I ran, lying still
Deep down in the abyss
Over the hill.

The fish in the tree
Were sleeping in their nests
Birds were swimming
As the sun rose from the west.

Raccoons playing trumpet
Ducks hunting crows
The people beside me
were swaying to and fro.

Yes, that’s what I saw
when my eyes were closed tight,
one cold, sunny day
on a rainy, snowy night.

Crack of dawn


At midnights I wait

Wait for something apparent

Till I realize

That’s not what I want

So I refocus

I listen to the silence

To the wonderful loving silence

As the murky night engulfs

The skyline

Full in itself

And I realize the wait

Was for its appreciation

Calling attention to itself

Calling out for laud

And unequir admiration

As hours pass by pondering

In the stillness of dawn

I hear the sounds from within

Echos of silence, of existence

Of infinity, of love

On the edge of a new day

I hear the call

I feel the urge of renascence

Of growth, of life
