Don’t give up

Don’t give up

They tried to tie the light with ropes
They tried to put it in a cage
Yet sparkled and glowed tiny hopes
Like silver scattered on a dark page


The tired city groaned with gloomy grief
Ached every bone, muscle and joint
Like fireflies flickering – small and brief,
aiming towards a celestial point


Rising from the silhouette of shadows-
unshackled, undeterred and undying,
Dreams, like the stars and moon, glows.
Whispering, “don’t give up without trying!”

Winter

The cold is setting in slowly
Hot chocolate calls my name
The December air is a little hazy
Winter is laying it’s claim

The pigeons sunbathe unabashedly
The green butterfly fluttered by
The kittens prance around shyly
Marshmallows float in the sky

And I’m getting hungrier these days
I stole a scoop from the creamy moon
The stars giggled while giving a chase
so I hid inside my dreamy cocoon.
