A Captive Me…

This night
Beauteous and bright,
Beauteous by the cool breeze
It brings in nice,
Beauteous by the sweet smells
Alluring soft
Of flowers that bloom
Around this place,
And bright by the full round moon
Shining upon the distant sky…

Here,
I rest on my reclining chair
My thoughts inclining to else where;
I gaze upon this star studded sky;
Like scattered gems
On a carpet black,
Suddenly these sparks
Capture my eyes
And pull me back
From my lazing thoughts
Soothing my pensive mood
This lovely sight …

Twinkle
As I look at them
They wink at me,
I feel them smile;
Not one or two a bunch of them
Ready to take me on a ride,
I start to count them
But countless I find;
Give up the game, I lose
A loss pleasing my mind…

I like
To close my eyes to keep them in;
But they open the lids inward
Fill me with joy;
Disarmed gazing I recline;
Springs up a thought
Into me so nice
‘Me a captive to these stars
In my mind! ’
