A Few Stars Tonight

It's my routine to take a walk every night
before going to sleep. Since, I'm living
away from the city, I always find time to
contemplate and think of many things.

A moonless night

'There are a few stars tonight
Just scattered pebbles in the sky
And the moon was nowhere in sight
Like empty valley to human eye

I stood alone with fascination
On this night of good reflection
As the silence was only broken
By insects that wander in the open
For as the elderly saying
That it's safe to walk this ground
If there was constant chirping
Of the crickets rhythmic sound

My dream, my dream this many nights
Is to walk alone this unlighted path

That neither scorpions or wild dogs
Snakes and other predators
Will be present...
When I stroll this obscure sand

There are a few stars tonight
And to be alone this time of night
The ideal place where I can pray
And ask for blessing on my days.'


Blessings, Crickets, Pray, Reflections, Sky, Stars
