Nightfalls


No one to see around the dark alley

I
n the hazy sky, stars twinkling brightly

G
rass is covered with a blanket of mist

H
allowing around the corner, the winds twist

T
o a serene, calm and silent night

F
orever tranquility in the twilight

A
s a veil on a bride’s face

L
oneliness covers the entire place

L
ending it’s beauty to the world


S
ilently they gratify the Earth


This poem is an Acrostic Poem (which forms the word NIGHTFALLS), about which I had recently written a post in my other blog.

Enough people have already talked about the various aspects of this poem. i guess i feel angry at myself for having come here late, and run out of words.

but like i already said before. its beauty lies in its simplicity.

and guess what here's one prize for you, since i loved the poem so much, am writing a poem titled 'Night Falls' dedicated to YOU. :)

Hello Nadine,
Thanks a lot for those compliments :blush:

Mr. Kimmi

I have not read theother comments because I didn't want to forget my questions, so please forgive me if you have already answered them. This is also just me thinking out loud...

Is there a connection between each of the images in the poem and nightfalls?

You say, "like a veil" followed by loneliness. But isn't a veil the gateway to having a lifeliong parnter?

Interesting work, it will take some time to digest. The absense of punctuation is really challenging me to chunk the parts together.

Meghna

Hi Mr. Kimmi,
Actually the veil I meant here refers to or has a different meaning. Like, at times, you wold have noticed that different words in different poems render different meanings...this is the same example!
I'm really sorry about the punctuations. I did not think they were needed so I did not use them! But I'll reconsider now...Thanks a lot!
