Roving Souls

Poem By Dr. Nikhat Bano

I'm alone, up, above, and beyond,
you too are alive but aloof;
As the lightning crosses the sky in a wink,
we meet the same way at the brook.

The moon has whispered softly,
something into the ears of this night;
She has clasped the oak in her arms
with the looming darkness in her sight.

The moon has promised me....
he will come out of his tinsel town,
will stay untill I'm dazed by his poise.
Tip toeing quietly at sundown.

Some eyes will be on me and some on you,
O Love, I'll sneak in your dark and leave;
Alas! Can't keep you ever in my loop,
our love is rock but our hearts bleed.

Comments about Roving Souls

A FULL MOON IN A DARK NIGHT IS QUITE ROMANTIC. IT SEEMS THE MOON IS IN A ROMANTIC CONVERSATION WITH THE NIGHT. ONE CAN HEAR THEIR SWEET TALKS IF ONE CAN LEND ONE'S SENSITIVE EARS AND SYMPATHETIC HEART.

A Message

The rays have brought your message
Piercing through my closed window
I can read a golden hued line
'I'll be yours, all my life'

Waiting To See A Daybreak

Standing alone at one end of the street
Is nerve wrecking;
Staring from nowhere to nothingness
Chills my spine.

Tanu: My Sister

A lily truth herself, a soul so pure,
who gets amused just by the sight,
of humble lilies of her courtyard;
Swaying during day, smelling during night.

A Glance Says All

Glowing as a lamp I saw a lone onlooker,
adorned with the flares of sun - one Gloria;
Unleashing a blaze of beauty around her,
lighted my heart's patio with her wine aura.

My Musings

You listen to all my whisperings,
you know what lies in my heart;
Your gazes follow my breaths,
only you can foretell my untold parts.

Pieces Of Life

Holding pieces of my jigsaw puzzle
I'm wandering from earth to heaven
Searching places for my oddities
Putting them at their right places
