In times of despair

When darkness clouds my mind

Filling it with hopeless fear

A flicker of light I find

 In moments of solitude

When bitterness overwhelms my heart

Enslaving my grit and fortitude

A   prayer I say makes my loneliness depart

In times of  fame and success galore

When my heart swells with pride

Yet my greedy self yearns for more

‘Stop’ says a voice somewhere deep inside

In times of love and happiness

when my haughty mind begins to ignore

my beautiful friends and loved ones

A nightmare reminds me of the solitude before

You have been in my journey

You have seen me through

You have guided me sternly

Yet I never saw you !

You were the light that I saw

You were the prayer that I said

You were the voice  shouting no

You were the nightmare  in  my bed

You led me to my today

You lead me to my tomorrow

You cleared the thorns in my way

You remove me from sorrow

THE THING CALLED ‘NIGHT’ – ( WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE- NIGHTTIME )

The crepuscular rays give way….

to the darkness that befalls…

the orb of the night ,is here to stay

till the brilliant sun comes to call….

The sky , now black , bespeckled 

with stars of silvery gleam

The world a silent spectator

to this nature’s hide and seek………

Oh…night ! you are  teeming with secrets ;

 Witness to many a  rendezvous ,clandestine..

you have seen it all……yet stood speechless ;

To stay tight-lipped you are destined…

THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN IN GOA , IN A BEACH SHACK – ROMANTIC ,ISN’T IT ?

Yet there is beauty in your solitude ;

you have been a symbol of romance…

displaying immense fortitude ;

embracing nature , in a passionate dance………

The night is no enemy of the light..

as it may, to us seem;

Because to know , how beautiful is ‘bright’ …

in the ‘night’,  we need to see……….
