Dr Shamim ali


A time pauses
nature changes its sentinel
All living things are asleep
In diffused light
between light and shadow
When the Sun is below the horizon
When the light is refracted
By the earth's atmosphere
In the period between sunset and dark
In the condition of ambiguity

In the state of obscurity.

Explore the dimension of imagination

Dusk drops its drape downward
Associate it with north star
Moving into a land of shadow and substance
Unlock the door with the source of mind's eye
You have someone waiting
A Friend meandering far-off.
By passing through the twilight
You can make her out
Twilight enhances every entity
You'll get her far and wide
The hours you spend with her

Feel her presence

In a fragrant garden
Before the Twilight fades away
Bring her out from gray twilight
Take her to the sky
Hide her in the galaxy
Which is filled with stars
Leave the twilight behind
Which is invisible by day
