Slipped into bed and began to review,
The year that had gone, with a distant view.
Sky, a shade of grey pearls, on full moon night.
On last day and hour of year, ah, so bright.
As clock struck twelve, and crackers erupt.
Revellers cheered and sang, ushered in first.
Watching the sky show from my windowpane
Was filled with delight, touched by song’s soft strains.
Became oblivious to outside din.
And conversed with my celestial kin.
I can’t miss my appointment with night.
Just can’t retire early try as I might.
The night and quiet serenade and revive
Body and spirit, wake up feeling alive.

    And night became a prince for you saying
    'O earthly charm of heavenly muse
    Adorn O! Adorn thy lips on thee'
    And make this night a night forever.......Awesome write madame

    Darkness pulls the shutters on the noise of day, a time to relax, or a time to revive. I have experienced both, I would read till the small hours, mind so awake.
    But in latter years I find I enjoy the early hours in the bliss of restful sleep, but tise before the cock has crowed. I love your reflective mind and poems Mamta. Love Bob

    Became oblivious to outside din.
    And conversed with my celestial kin.

    I would add,
    Then in a perfect state of trance
    Silently, with my kin, I sang and danced.

    Silence is a very powerful medium. You are one of the lucky ones who can decipher the message from silence. (Report) Reply
