Under the darkest sky I've ever seen,
with ocean of twinkling stars,
Cool breeze was blowing,
And I felt the wind playing with me,
A mass surrounded by the sparkling water,
and a splendid reflection of leaves in it,
And crystalline dew drops over them,
seems to ornate them as a newly wedded girl.
Some fireflies, I can see
Some lizards, I get scared by the sight of them,
And the shrill sound of those cockroaches,
rested peacefully in the intensive winters.
Standing in solitude,
refection can I see,
in the flickering of infinite candles and lanterns,
And I don't want to move an inch.
How can I forget the docile grass,
which was as soft as silk,
on which I moved; I felt my bare feet wet,
as if grass was still perspiring.
Perhaps,This intrinsic beauty in darkness,
I shall welcome all my life.
P.S.- I wrote this poem in Alibaug,a suburb of Mumbai on the New Years's eve! I can hardly imagine this kind of beauty in Delhi.
