Day And Night

day and night the gravest foes
still none have seen them waging wars
leaves the day, oh the fading gleams
and the night comes with his shining stars

they share their time like sons their will
each day their crown, mutely they change
the day of his light, and of darkness gloats night
yet still dwells there a bond too strange

what if they were to coexist
the blackened rays and the daylight's spark
would their spring like humans be
the glittering face, and the heart dark

    You have beautifully juxtaposed two opposing facets of humans, a smiling face and a wicked heart and wonder if they exist as day and night - the arch enemies who stay in harmony without any open discord! This is a poem packed with meaning and full of poetic beauty!

    Welcome back Kanav!

    Human's be the glittering face, and the heart dark. Sadly, this clever poem describes the level to which the human race has stooped. A very thought provoking piece indeed.

    Day and night
    Brightness and darkness
    Glittering face and darker heart
    Are the realities and the law of Nature and would remain forever......a nice reflective poem.....Kanav
