The Rain At Night - Poem by Yasmeen Khan

The hush of the night is dark and deep
Raindrops falling ring through sleep
Silver dreams from heavens drop
And fall in the murk with a soft plop

The ones lying in slumber’s arm
Know not the showering dreams’ charm
Only the waking souls in blithe
Bathe in mirth, spirits be lithe

The sun’s garish been burning so long
To feel the coolness I stretch my palm
And feel the rain’s touch on the lips
Healing showers rendering bliss in sips

Some weary thoughts grasp the brain
Come round and round with rain’s refrain
The blessed waters for some are blight
Bundles on the heads misery’s sight


Black of woes in drops’ flurry awash
Spirits dance in ‘treble, tenor and bass’
Dreams linger in sleepless eyes
Ears all to the music falling from the skies!

    The diction tells its story how the poem is composed... One could easily get the impression that U were much excited while composing but one thing that I noticed (may be I'm wrong) is that U had difficulty while choosing the words... The natural flow of thought is disturbed by the rhyming words... But, overall, a nice piece of poetry! (Report) Reply

    I could see how deep you went in this beautiful writing.
    It seems to bring something hiding inside out. Tender, deep but true
    Well done.i love it.
