Savita Tyagi


Four A.M.


Clouds move out
Stars move in
Full moon speaks not
The crickets hush not
And I
Just restless!

Sit sit sit
Close my eyes and sit
Void and emptiness
Stretche in night
So calm and serene
Against restive mind

Once time casts us aside
Life doesn't abide in have to do mode
Yet mind gets restless
Passions and emotions
Scattered like grass seeds
Some to germinate in green grass
Others to be washed away in autumn rain

Fate presents us the life
Beyond our wildest dreams
But strips away too
The simplest longings
The youthful energy flies away
Without leaving a trace
Like the little bird on garden fence

Thoughts and inspiration
Lost in blank mind
Like stars hidden
Behind clouds
In autumn sky

Subdued sense detect
Only the breath of life
repetitive motion
comes and goes
Soon to be forgotten
In flights of mind

Weariness-
The only awareness
That lingers on and on
To take over all else
Sleep stays away
Like an unwelcome guest

Eventually mind concedes to quiet sitting
A moment of neutral living
Neither of joy nor sadness
All dissolves
In limit less silence

Orange moon shines on window
Big and beautiful
As in prime of youth
Night moves on unhurried
To give way for another dawn.

    A pleasant moment in the still night
    A diamond only a poet like you can find
    At the witching hour seeing the moon
    You have seen real beauty's fleeting shine......
