At Nightfall - Poem by Nosheen Irfan

When the day is done
and a silver moon rises
on the crest of heaven
full, self-assured and bright
in the midst of envious stars
that shine with all their might,
a dream wakes in me
of love, more resplendent
than the sky I behold.

    This is perfect, Nosheen. How resplendent indeed the heavens, and how powerfully beautiful within us the wonder of love. Your writing here is so precisely complete. You capture the magnitude of such a topic with such efficiency. Bravo, my good poet! (Report) Reply

    Hi Nosheen
    I take moon here, as a metaphor for for a lover visiting his lover at nightfall. All made up and handsomely attired to impress his love. He is in 'cloud nine' as he knows that his love is waiting. And confident too! All his friends are envious, naturally.

    The night sky is my dream, my lover. I don't want to make her jealous by dreaming of mortals.: -) (Report) Reply

    Hahaha. I also love night sky. It is a huge inspiration for me. Thank you Kelly for witty remark.

    Hard to imagine that the dream of dreams would ever be put to rest, to sleep even a fitful sleep. So close to the surface always at the very least a whisper in the air. I love the lunar majesty. The optical illusion of stars impossibly bright paling the silver moon. Jealous stars indeed. To link this heavenly scene, the physical, the spiritual in such a seamless and bitter-sweet manner leaves only the echo of an ache.......superb 10 (Report) Reply
