Last Night

night

 

The last night of 2012 takes with it

sorrows, malice and pain,

cuts envy, swallows greed,

injects optimism in worry and cools anger

And a bright new day opens up

as innocent as a child,

which imbibes its teachings

Is it to be fed with kindness and optimism?

or frustrations and misgivings?

The first day waits

Waiting for the Light

I said, “It is dark all around

I am waiting for the light”

He said, “Just open your eyes

It is bright all over”

 

I said, “It has been night all along,

I am waiting for the sunshine.”

He said, “The sun is at its best

Your eyes are inverted

It is the darkness of your heart

that you are feeling.”

And I am still waiting…

Land of Agony

It was night and night all around

the sun refused to glare at the land

and moon feared to shine

 

A land of failure, it was called

Cursed by nature and God

Every living thing had a poor growth

Grasses looked pale

and flowers blossomed black

 

The land of agony

waits for a day

the obstinate sun would turn the force

of its orange glow

the moon would take pity

and display its bright beauty

the black sky would turn blue forever

bringing with it all the good fortune

Peace at Last

 

Forget the fears of the day

and the pain of the noon,

live for that moment

before the night

when you own your time,

when the gentle wind beckons to you,

serene plants whisper,

warmth enters your being

and peaceful sleep takes you away

Night

The fascination of the night

The secret it beholds

Erasing sorrows of the cruel day

Offering calmness all the way

Pacifying many a raging hearts

Soothing many a confused minds

Taking them into a world of oblivion

A paradise of calm and peace.

Who compares night to gloom?

And the day to joy?

I will take darkness anytime

Take away the scorching sun

And show me the way to oblivion.
