Night break pt.I

The glorious pines stand,
In their battle scarred gowns,
Taller into the starry sky,
Belligerent and brown.

A mystical aura,
Drifting through the air,
Ambrosial and damp,
Complementing the moon’s flair.

Enchanting music plays,
From the orchestras in the sky,
Little flickering fireflies fly,
as the old peaks sit by.

Gurgling creeks of silver flow,
Laden with fish and toads,
As this verdant moss ever so glows,
On these grassy, untraveled roads.

Vines of jasmines of night,
How abundantly do they bloom,
Fragrant but entangled,
In thy eternity of doom.

Ethereally bewitching,
‘Tis a symphony rich and deep,
Night’s an enchantress love,
And all we can do is sleep.

    The night
    holds in the dream
    the inner world
    their doings
    without glossing over
    consciousness
    the mirror in front

    Shanya, this poem feels magical. I felt it stirring as I read. Now I feel the need to step outside and lift my eyes to the heavens and absorb the night 👏 And that, is what poets do. Outstanding 💜

        I hope more of us had the time to look away from our lives and stare at the mystery of the cosmos. I’m so thankful, honestly. Cheers.

  15. This creates such a peaceful atmosphere, though there’s an undercurrent of something darker. The “battle scarred” pines make me think of all the forests damaged by fires in the past few years.
