Raveendran N.V.

! ! Alone A Waft Of Soft Delight

About a sharp and lonely moon
Among the sea of stars and clouds
A smileless sigh, a doleful look
Alone, alack! a wail anon.

A swing, a sweep, across the deep
A sky above. a sky below
A rook. a roost. aside beside
A long tunnel behind beneath.

At once around the moon a smile
As lit anew among the gloom
As it was light to life benign
Alone a waft of soft delight.

    Night music. Deep, blue, pensive and memorable. Song of the solitary soul. Lovely, Raveendran.

    Warmest regards,

    Sandra

    This is simply gorgeous, Raveendran. Outstanding, in fact. Lyrical, rhythmical, wistful and quite charming. A love affair with night methinks. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
