Child of the night…

child of the night
she speaks
her wisdom imbibed
by the sorrows
shed in a whisper
by we, the children
of the still morning

In acceptance of the Perfect Poet Award given by the Thursday Poets Rally, Week 49. My humble thanks for the nomination, and I’d like to reciprocate by nominating Citra Sasmita at Journey to Eternity for Week 50.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. I like how you see the owl, the wisdom filled from and with our sorrows. Even I like to just whisper it out into the night. Nice one.

  2. New look is beautiful.. congratulations Leo for the Award.. well deserved..

    I think one of my haikus shouted and asked me why hasn’t Leo come as yet to read us.. I didn’t have an answer… thought you may have..well answer him if you wish to.. RS 🙂

    • Thanks Rameshji 🙂 I’m glad you liked it, and felt the award deserved.

      Yes, I do realize that, and will come read the haikus soon. The days are more hectic at work now, and the evenings go with either posting, replying to comments, or just resting.

      I haven’t forgotten your posts 🙂 And will come by asap! Sorry for the delay!
