Hide & Seek
pleasant in a summer eve
by Sonali Ganguly
i sat alone in a mood pensive.
fixed my eyes in the distant sky
tried to measure it- how far & high.
dark those clouds have
covered the shinning star,
moon kept searching its dear one
in the roving sky.
near to each other but still too far,
they keep on moving, till the night die.
moon even dips into
the thick dark shade,
search for the star makes its light fade.
cloud floats away in order to escape,
hiding the stars, behind their huge shape.
too long continues
this chasing race,
it gave a flash of smile to my face.
sitting there i observed
the hide & seek game,
distracting my mind
it kept me amaze.
i wish the wind to
drag away the clouds,
releasing the stars
from its thick dark shroud
let the moon & star shine together again,
the sky seems barren till they are found
