    Lovely poem with a wise message! May I invite you to read my poem Break of Dawn also with similar elemets, I'm sure you'll find it quite interesting. I'd be honoured to hear what you have to say. (Report) Reply

    I am quite inquisitive, Nilakshi Nath,1. why does the East keep vigil and Is there any specific reason for keeping vigil? 2. 'We must not break His law', which means is it possible for us to break the Law of Nature? Could you please explain? Thank you.. (Report) Reply

    I relate it to the contradiction of time, between the gaps of east and west, its a really well pened and creatively molded write, one that draws a smile in me, wonderful Nilakshi!

    The guard duty of west and east with cultures unique to each.
    Now the west can rest knowing the East will do their best.

    The amazing time differences in our world, so nicely described in this poem.
    I fully agree that we should respect day and night as much as we can.
    When I was young, people had a party from 8 pm till 12 midnight.
    Now parties seem to start only at 12 midnight. (Report) Reply
