Fifty Shades of Sky

Image from Seema Pillay


“The sky grows  darker, painted blue on blue, one stroke at a time, into deeper and deeper shades of night.”

I admire your vastness that fills the emptiness in air

The burden of sun moon and stars, how do you bear

To suit their moods you change your colors

You understand their language and relate to their fears

I hear those thunders loud and clear

Is that a way you scream to make them cheer

Your shades so fierce, show how much you care

Those raindrops that fall down must be your tears

You cry for them, for sure they must be dear

How lucky they are, they have someone to hear

It doesn’t matter then if you are far or near

All it matters is when they need you are there

  1. Wow…beautiful indeed!!

    Our hunt for definitions and meanings are never ending. We always desire to provide something meaningful and yearn for the same.

    We build a fence around us and only look outside it to compare. But don’t realise the treasure we possess within.

    Unveiling such realisations, opening chests of such treasures,
    HemasSphere brings to you 1 of such series. Focus is always on realism.

    To the world where I belong and to me where the world resides.

    Listen, don’t just hear! – is the 1st of the series.
    Speak, don’t just talk! – is 2nd post of the series

    Would be honoured by your visit and presence on my page and would be appreciate your views.

    I can be followed on

    Happy reading.
