A Silent Night - Poem by Sameer Agnihotri

Sun’s gone; its warmth is felt no longer;
Wait, see, here comes the radiance of dark, herald of beauty;
Thou came so silently, none mortal notices.
So quiet is this day, night is falling, dark and dark;
Clouds moving so silently, so smoothly;
Birds mute, trees mute, and wind undertone;
A pin drops like a bomb, water trickles like bullets;
Breathing crafts storms, heartbeats drums;
I reflects what is this silence, for whom is this silence, by whom is this silence; no rejoinder by anyone.
Silence is peeving, shivers my soul, deep; seems an advent of storm, so fierce, so violent;
Went inside, closed window with a bang, voice audible to heavens,
Went under shade of quill and closed my casements.
