YOU know what is the most beautiful thing about the sky?
Is that it lights up when its dark,
And the stars shine more brightly when its darkest.

They say not a word and yet seem to smile
and they steal your heart though for a while
And you wonder if that blanket has been kept by someone to keep you warm
The warmth of the sky falls softly on your face even when its chill
As if you lie overt to love touched and embraced by its breath........

Glory of the vast sky sung by many poets,
Nutured by their fertile imagination.
I explore to draw out a story of my own,
I feel the romance to visualize the dawn sky,
where the stars that all night have befriended the soft shining moon depart
Letting sunrays evolve a different moon.

While the sky is still the witness to see this
I wonder how many such stories has the sky been witness to?
Being so distant it shows us an ultimate drama of life
Distance doesnt kill them neither ends their love
for Ages they meet on the same sky everyday
Yet they Never Meet
Is it just something that poets imagine...
Or are they able to do it because they are celestial.

The sky is witness to all
as large it is ......more mysterious and enchanting it seems to me.....

wow! nice article.. as if sum1 is lost in one's own thoughts.. Great.. Sky has many importance scientifically but even it has some sentimental values.. like all who aspire to go high up in their life.. juz say that we have to reach the sky.. if GOD is to be thanked then most people generally look up towards the sky.. and pay their respects.. When ever sum1 is happy they wud say that they r not in this earth but feel as if they are in sky.. so I think sky in itself is something sorta positive factor, some inspirational factor.. something giving hope and comfort.. A sense of equality and oneness.. Juz winding up stating a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson-The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.

well euphorical i really dont know how i write things its lk i write them in one go i can hardly write them at one place then wait to type them back on computer...i guess i have some passion for writing and
im not very sure about being emotional the context in which people take emotionalism and its several meaning have a long debate to go bz i dont believe that showing emotions or crying is being emotional ...bz it helps you to know what is imp to know and can be a way of valuing that.

But one thing is sure if you cry too often it only shows world that you value too many things more than what there value is :)

anywz its long thing to talk about...
for now i wish to thank you for appreciating my article :)
wish you reach heights of sky in life :D
take care

Hi V its really nice to see back your comment again on my blog ...well with the context in which i wrote the poem was not only about success though yes it can be one of the aspects but was an accumulation of experiences the sky goes which could be quiet an interpretation for different things to different people.I mean you can presume sky to be anything and the incidents i have mentioned as something else i leave it to your imagination i guess Readers should alwz have the freedom to decide what they want to see in the poem rather than what the author forces them to see .......that is what literature is for Freedom of expression
but true today and forever fast moving world sure Waldo Emerson said right - "The sky is the daily bread of the eyes"
metaphor to sky can be dreams :) sure
thx for placing your comment once agn

wish you reach heights of sky in life :D
take care
