The Magic of Night

#100DaysOfBlogging Day 10

The clock strikes two.

Outside the world is silent.

The wind echoes through emptiness.

The page of night is filled with stars.

But in front of me, the page is blank.

A pen lies on it, opened.

It waits.

It waits for the muse to arrive.

It waits for the words to silently awaken.

It waits for the thoughts to live in bright blue drops.

The world sleeps.

The words awaken.

They breathe, coming to life on paper.

And as they do…

So do I.

From 23rd September, exactly 100 days are left in the year, the idea is to write on each of these days. A few other friends chose their own themes. I thought I’d collaborate with Aniesha bon on the challenge. We’re choosing topics on alternate days, and each day, we’re writing on the same topic too. I chose the topic NIGHT for Day 12.

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.
