Starry Night

When you are solitary,
As night drops his dark feather
Upon the quietness of the earth,
All sleeping, weaving the fabric of hope
In their dreams.
Except for you,
Who is left, alert and awake,
Under the roof of night,
The solemn night.
And our earth?
Still and silent, as a stretch of grave ocean.
She stares incessantly; stares with a heart,
Imbued with optimism
To cast a friendly look at them, called,
Her friends.
And you loll on her grassy lap,
With as much comfort as possible to seek;
For that sole reason,
To cast a friendly look at them, called,
Your friends.
No sound reaches your ears,
At the fall of quiet night;
But the sound of some rustling river,
From one of her calm corners.
And then you feel their approach,
But can never hear it.
They crept over her,
To touch the roof of night,
And cast their glances at both you and her,
Gleaming in unison.
The night turns into ‘starlit night’,
He makes a hollow inside you,
And an empty feeling of hope is etched,
Deep into your heart,
As the starlight falls over both you and her.
Both the friends staring with fixed eyes
With a decent smile engraved on your face.
And they, gazing back at both of you.
But you never hear them speak.
Their speechless faces,
Are the only bosom ones
To you and her.
Yours, theirs and hers,
Three of the stares adjoin,
And invites a true friendship to the three silent minds.
You are at last, taken into a trance,
Mild and unflagging,
Under the stars.

‘I wish I were there, where the cold earth remains my bed, the sky my protection
and the stars my guard. And my dream at night is the trance , I am driven into by the starlit night.’

Solitary Star
