Veiled

 

By Asma Firdous

in

 

Let the sun fade from the frame

Allow the dark to diffuse

Into the day-lit sky

Invite the stars to adore

Welcome the night.

 

Veiled by the glittering dark

Dreams flutter their fragile wings

A trance of freedom.

Someone within me rises.

 

Civilization blurred away

Laws trapped within the books

Bustle and jostle deafened…

I sing.

 

I sing a silent melody

Some vintage notes

Turned golden with time…

The burnt poem

A song of truth.

 

The stars twinkle…

Reflecting every rhyme

Of my wordless song

Gracefully the moon dances.

 

A night silently Aloud…
