The Stargazer - Poem by Sagnik Chakraborty

Laid back on the couch of a grassy patch,
He gazes at the vastness of the sky,
His wandering gaze would browse the cosmos high
When twinkling bodies with starry eyes match.
What thoughts then pervade now his pensive mind?
Is it the shallowness of our ambition?
- Restless, vain and borne by futile occasion,
Or is it just some loving visage kind?
The sky converses with the dazed beholder
Mirroring the human world's bargains,
Through billion beacons of the obscure night,
The shining light conveys a hope still bolder -
Of emptying pails of losses and of gains
Into the sea of wisdom and insight.
