Come here! Look at the sky.
Its full of small white dots,
sparkling in the night.
Stars we name it.
Some are fairly visible,
some are bright.
Decorating the huge black canvas
with specks of white.
Starry night, we call it,
when the dark canvas
lightens up by the glistening of those
white little diamonds.
I feel at ease then,
having the hope
that even a dust of light
can illumine darkness.
The delightment that I get then,
gazing at the sky
, the shiver that I feel then,
feasting my eyes,
the cold nose I get then,
standing still at the terrace
in a cold winter night.
.. I feel alive from inside,
though I am freezing outside!
Its worth the effort, that I make,
to glance at the sky.
But now its all gone!
vanished with the cold winter breeze.
The sky is still dark. But the decorations are no more!
Instead I see speckels of light. But those are not THAT beautiful and BRIGHT.
Those have a different name now.
We call it as the city lights. They dont sparckle like the "stars" ...
They dont illumine the cold dark night!
They dont excite me like the ones before!
Then where did the "stars" go?
I see the sky is now, layered
with grey smoke.
And the specks of white?
They are no more!
But when the heaven favours me, I see one or two.
And a blurry vision of the radiating Moon.
I fear now.
I am confused to take decisions.
As I think about the next situation.
When there will be no specks of white stars.
Not even a single one.
When not even the blurry vision of moon would be seen.
When the sky will just be as dark as a black hole.
When there will be no illumination at the night sky.
Its scary to watch.
Scarier to think.
And will there be anyone asking to go for "STARGAZING" ?
