Nocturne #17

napo2017button1Day 17 of NaPoWriMo and today’s prompt is to write a nocturne.


And the city dozes, as twilight hits my window,
   And I rhapsodise the melodies of that dusky flow though.
       The blue shadowy night, writes me a lyrical poem,
            Sinks her heart into a still symphony to know him  
                She performs her rituals just to fade in his silence,
                    Accompanied by the dewy clouds, a beautiful alliance
                     Jolted by ever starry space she moves ahead,
                  Merging into the light afar, with the dawn she wed,
              Don’t you want to stay?
          Don’t leave yet, I pray!
    But I lied there bewitched, woken to a new day,
And I lied there bewitched, yet to see time sway.

-Roshni Rajshekhar Nair
