The lone star


A lone star twinkles,
Vanishing from my sight.
Blinking to a beat,
One can't hear.

I ask it to stop
The blinking and twinkling
It says to me,
I shan't today. 

It matches my heart,
The rhythm of the star,
It looks down on my windowsill.

Where I sit with wonder,
Looking up at the sky
My heart doesn't seem to still.

I stare at the star,
And it stares at me back
A game we play all night.

For morning shall come,
The dark blanket disperse, 
And I shall stare solemnly at the sky.

***

2 am thoughts, a star caught my fancy. Need I say more?  :)

  7. Gazing up at the stars is the best way of relaxing ... Gradually you forget everything... It feels as if you are flying there in between the stars...
    This is what I used to do like a couple of years ago... Just go to the terrace and stayed there for hours... Every one in my family knew where to find me after dinner :-D
    I still do some times...
