Summer Evening - Poem by Savita Tyagi

Dusk invites summer evening
The sun is getting ready to slip behind the trees, behind the tall buildings and some where behind the hill.
The faint half moon peeking on eastern sky
Like a little child waiting for a chance to play once the mother falls asleep.
Soon the darkness of descending night will give moon a chance to radiate in its own beauty.
Away from the shadow of cosmic giant it plays in the company of shining stars and galaxies.
Beautiful summer night-
Their time to leave a mark upon universe.
Under the celestial canopy life on earth follows a similar pattern.
As older generation moves towards the sunset of its life
The new generation emerges like gray moon still soaked in sunlight.
This meeting point of dusk will last only a little while when commanders of life exchange places.
Soon the new life will glow in its own beauty.
Like moon and stars new characters play upon earth's bosom.
Keeping their date with destiny
Some will shine like full moon all night long.
Some like crescent moon playing hide and seek with clouds.
Some will loose their existence all together to thunder and lightning
From the womb of dark night will emerge the dawn with its golden rays
Sun closes the curtain upon night ending the celestial play
The supreme commander who reins the celestial abode alone.
The cycle of life and time keeps on moving.
