Bathed in Starlight

As we add the happiness in life
And so do add the sadness of life
Well balanced, we get sum zero
A zero sum game, so is life

Sometimes we do bask in sunlight
And get involved with its glory
We do feel even worse for the night
Which follows every bright days

But we must admit, even in night
May be a new moon, dark might
There are stars to spot their lights
And make you glow all in dark

Even though you are dipped in dark
Don’t loose any of your little glows
Cause there are millions of tiny stars
To spare you with all of spotlights

This is lovely Susan! The last verse sums up the balance of nature beautifully if we but pay attention. A much enjoyed read.


Lovely thoughts Susan very relaxing to read them.

Take care.

Hi Susan :)

I have been looking for a starry sky but so far I could not locate it. When ever I up at the sky in the night it was cloudy. You are lucky to get a magnificent view and capture it for me. Beautiful starry sky. This sky reminds of the nursery rhyme;


Although this is a nursery rhyme it is one of my favorite.

Of course, you are giving a valuable lesson to us in your poem. Not to lose hope in times of trials and tribulations when every thing looks dark and frightening we can still shine.

Have a lovely day Susan :)

You helped me escape! Thank you for your beautiful pencil and word magic Susan...I have not written anything that good in a while...

The first part of your poem reminds me of nirvana and perfect balancing. Life really does have a lot of opposites within nature, and living.

You inspire me to write better than before..
Its good to read about the heavenly bodies for a change, rather than the same old news and articles on net.

Thank you for letting me fly without wings for sometime.

The night sky is awesome. At night is when I see the vastness of the universe. It is in the darkness I find peace and hope.
Lovely poem and photograph.

I liked this very much. I like to stare into a night sky to see if I can spot anything new. When you look into a night sky it gives you the sense of how fast space is. Thank you for coming by.

Krishanu said...

Wow! Indeed your
'little thoughts' are enchanting. I just thought of sharing a bit of a verse on life:
We never have what we like,
We never like what we have,
Still we live & love & hope
That some day
We get what we love
Or love what we have.
That's Life.
