I Walked Past 9 o'clock

I Walked Past 9 o'clock

A Poem by V.L.Mir
"

"

The street has now covered with yellow light


    The grasses, the houses, and the fences, too


    The scenery makes it look like another place


    Though a place is not another as it seems


 

The pavement complements the night above


    Whose darkness is tainted with dark clouds;


    Clouds that are streaked with flashes of light


    Etched every time though uncertain

 


I walked past nine o’clock


    And touched an old willow tree


    Its skin felt coarse and rough


    And has barks where I can fit my fingers through


 

The park is seven lamp posts away


    All of which are three trees apart


    I stroll past two lover’s touch


    While they show their love as I passed by


 

I reached over there and look above


    Where stars are still vibrant in few clear patches


    There I realized as I contemplate I see


    How thankful I am that I walked tonight.

I absolutely love the message that you are sending here. I love the fact that the narrator is just enjoying nature and everything around them at its finish glory. That's beautiful. This is also wonderfully put together. I am a huge fan of poems and you have structured this amazingly while also keeping the idea of the poem still relevant. Truly amazing. Keep up the amazing work. :)

Life is simple. Caressing a old tree can show us. The world will last and what we do today is important. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
