Dark night kindles the chamber of thoughts
I never know where I roam.
a full day drags me back.
Possibly, a shadow in the back
the other half of a lighted discourse.
Growing night has stories to communicate.
The lonely lamp post is its guard.
Some mysterious designs,
shadows of something
Make a clean sweep.
Green shower of leaves record their fall
when breeze take them all on its way.
Each rainy moment has a context
others hardly believe what one experience.
Some truths die hard, each dupatta has a story
as others find them not happening,
dark night has its rise and fall.
The clock is heard louder
from the other side of the wall.
Notes: Dupatta : It is most commonly used with salwar kameez and the kurta.
