On A Starry Night - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

I ventured into the night to gather a bouquet of stars
Pluck and place them in the basket of my thoughts,
The night was dark and the stars stooped low
Lighting up the open field in their silvery glow.


I saw a thousand of them in a pool of water
Prying upon the earth and then winking at one another,
I could feel the warm embrace of the cool mesmerizing breeze
While shadowy trees nodded their head in this celestial scene.
