All is right

21 Feb

When the stealthy seconds slip slowly by

On a chillingly calm and lonesome night

And a knowing , friendly star

Winks at me to quell my fears

When the breeze heaves a silent sigh

And fireflies trace a flickering flight

When a nightbird tweets from afar

And another replies from somewhere near

When the meadows echo an infant’s cry

And a mother croons somewhere out of sight

When the clouds conspire to crawl up and mar

The moonlit sky , so bright and clear

Then it is that my dreams refuse to die

And Beauty stalls the Winter’s blight

The lingering pain from old scars

Dissolve in the silence and all is right.

    beautiful poetry, soothing and serene! I found comfort in just letting this sink in. I agree -we need a collection of these exquisite pieces to read, re-read, hold, breathe in and cherish..and soon 🙂

      Grateful for your words of encouragement. Someday, when I feel truly convinced that they are that worthy. Meanwhile I’m quite happy that you folks are around.

    Dear Nadira
    One experiences serenity and closeness to soothing Nature reading yr verse.It is so refreshing and soothes once old sores.I once again urge U to share yr creations with larger audiences by publishing in periodicals as also publishing as a solo collection.
