A Small Blanket


He could not cover his body within a small blanket,
at a whopping winter night
It covered his head but too short to cover his leg
As like as a fence of third world middle class economy-

A candle light beamed in the hut,
moving with hope and hopeless,
as swing as a pendulum-
A tranquil mind didn't arise any pique

Stretched to whirl and craft unlike grievous dream
He rose early at dense foggy dawn
Someone departed toward horizon,
as a shadow fog within the fog!

He understood the same song again and again
It was another morning to start towards his way,
Still insufficient money in his pocket,
as the small blanket that pinched-hit at night

    still there is a hope
    a hint of light
    in lines
    you find the glow
    of faith in the mist- a little hope to cling alive /well done (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
