An Opulent Night - Poem by vittal vandavasu

They were scattered like shards of diamonds
On a black background of velvet cloth
The horizon that divided the high bonds
Between heaven and earth, nothing was wrath

The moon hung like an orb amidst stars
Glowing white and spreading pleasant charm this night
From below they appeared like the healing scars
To all those who fell to beauty's might

A gentle graceful wind kissed the night
Carrying fragments of odors, roses and jasmines
On the trees for shadows fell moonlight
And lovers wish to bring their darlings

No alcohol nor drug would match
All of beauty's silent lucid bliss
From above fell angels to catch,
by those fortunates who did wish

The lustily might of the opulent night
Enchanted those few an ethereal scenic spectacle
For this look by the mortal's sight
Was a priceless price rigid to tackle
