A Night In Winter - Poem by Tiku akp

-->

Dripping drops of diamond dews
Ice-cold beads encompassing numerous hues
Swirling down the peacock-green leaves
And get disappeared on the bed of sheaves.

Dew drenched path bear fine imprints
Of scurrilous insects in their nocturnal stints
Cool are the Moon, the trees, and the huts in the dark
Coolest of all is the place where I work.

The cool breeze brings the weirdest of tales
As an eerie silence reigns over undulating vales
Hoots of an owl or the ruffling of feathers
Down into the spine they send the shivers.

Sliding down to the west, on the slate
Of an opaque sky the panoply of teeming stars
Will hide and rest on the lap of the earth
Followed with its cohorts by the exuberant Mars;


In the roof-tops, foliages and stacks of hays
The witches move hunting for preys
The priest with candles and a silver platter
Mutter prayers sprinkling the Holy-water.


Warming itself by the cindering fire
The cat dozes off with half closed eyes
It gives a shake to its languid tail
To get rid of the bothering flies;

For the white beam, it won’t be late
To spread across the sky through Heaven’s gate.
For afar a mellifluous tune can be heard
Perhaps to its beloved is calling a bird.

Clouds of colours flit across the firms
As the birds dive for supple worms.
At the sign of night’s surreptitious descend
Village girls gather at the river band.

    Powerful language
    I believe your work with rhyme is very well done, and if read aloud adds much to the music of your words. There are many fine images in this poem, I am picking one that dug hard in my heart today - I am sure tomorrow another will hit just as hard.

    on the slate of an opaque sky the panoply of teeming stars will hide and rest on the lap of the earth

    Beautiful
    Beautiful imagery and a very fine language. But, if rhymes are avoided (which is the modern way) your poetry will be really very grand (Report) Reply

    The poem is made striking by a string of beautiful images
    ‘Warming itself by the cindering fire
    The cat dozes off with half closed eyes
    It gives a shake to its languid tail
    To get rid of the bothering flies; ’ …… Of all, I like the image of this cat, warming itself close to the fire. Enjoyed this beautifully rhyming poem!
