Dawn

Oh! little stars..
Are you waiting for DAWN?
I am also like you...longing for DAWN!
When it dawns...
you will disappear;
but.....
In my longing for DAWN....
The DAWN itself will disappear! !

Nice one speakings to Loving things!
longing can be elastic at times, nice words Munuswamy
Nice, neat play on words that is both sweet and satisfying to my poetic appetite!
In my longing for DAWN.... The DAWN itself will disappear! ! this is symbolic writing........ longing and the realization that it will disappear. does it denote happiness or sadness dear poetess..? ?
Hi Saraswathy, All through our lives, we long for things, not knowing that they are so short-lived. Many things we cherish to possess disappear, before we have even possessed it, like dawn. The sense of loss and void they create in our hearts are much bigger than our longing itself. Fantastic observation and exquisite imagery that make the poem extra-ordinary. Thanks for sharing.
