Dusk


From dawn to dusk without a stop
The sun was shuttling east to west
As it was never ending course of action,
He needed some rest so badly.

Mighty ocean mother of the sun,
Welcomed him with love and warmth
Slowly he sank in her lap
And sleep had gently sealed his eyes.
Spontaneously there occurred
Dawn of the dusk and withering of a day.

The twilight therefore came into view
from the pyre of the day as usual.
The winsome dusk shyly smiled
that blush had at once reflected
as crimson clouds up in the sky.

From the snow capped steep mountains
One tiny cloud of mist flew down
A flowing silk gown of glowing white
She bestowed the dusk willingly.

The twilight watched the waterlily,
the lady love of moon.
A lot of them were intermingled
and had bloomed in different shades.
Tinkling sound of twilight's anklet
woke them up from the sleep
The silver moon rays fondled them well
and had seen their smiling faces.
Then and there both of them got
an accomplishment for their love

The dusk had seen the scene indeed
But she was listening carefully
the well acquainted foot steps
of her lover, the night, anxiously!
The level of patience had decreased steadily
and could not endure any more waiting,
she cried.
Her soliloquies thus went on and on
They got drenched in her own tears!

The night fell on earth abruptly
by giving the dusk a sigh of relief.
When he gently embraced the dusk
an eternal love glittered his eyes.
He tried his best while titivating her
With a lovely necklace, his sign of love!
Twinkling stars just turned
into its string of jewels and
the comely moon as its pendent.
They both got melted into one
to become one, once again!

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
