STARRY NIGHT


Let the moment be still in the
starry night.
let the indulgence of this moment
be as quiet and secret as the
opening of the wild flowers.
sleeping under the bed of grass,
along the roof of starry night,
let the sleep be full of peace.
let only the shooting stars come
from the celestal world to fall
like a rain and the fireflies
dancing among them.
let the call of love of cricket,
bog from the scrub and the marshy
pond be the only song.
let the time be the only silent
observed in the play of night of
paradise.

    I feel like i am sitting in silence in a peaceful room observing every single detail around me. Like savoring the peacefulness around. Although my tempo of peace was disrupted from the line and the line below cricket but it is a beautiful piece. Keep up! :) (Report) Reply

    Enjoyed the description of this serene, silent Night lit with stars and mildly disturbed by the sound of crickets! The peaceful sleep in the lap of Nature on a bed of grass is a delightful experience! (Report) Reply

    Dancing words that are lit by the wonder of the stars at night drawing inspiration from nature's rich abundance!
    Shimmering with impact of the mystique of the stars in all their splendour!
    Excellent write! (Report) Reply

    The title reminds me the painting by Vincent van Gogh..definitely stars are things that defined me most...my inspiration all the time..as much moonlight shine does..I like the sensitivity scene you shared especially laying on the soft green grass and watching the blinking shine....it so beautiful to imagine that, your words also comforting.Keep for the good words_Soul (Report) Reply
