Midnight Laugh

Midnight Laugh

A Poem by Vivek George Koshy
"

personal outing within my room, just before a storm

"
A dose of caffiene,
keeps the midnight lamp; awake.
The keen sense of venture,
gives way to the frailties of night.
The shortest winds;
brings up scary figures.

The night lived for the silence;
not for the crow,
which mourns the day.
The sparrows contend.
The eagles pretend.
And the darkness slows time.

Someone laughs.
A smirk i heard.
A tiny drop, failed by the clouds,
bombards into my resting.
The silent repose is shaken;
and the repitation helps.

In the darkness,
everything does survive.

An excellent piece with excellent wordplay. To me and this is just an abstract interpretation is that despite the fact that the world is a dark and dim place it is through how we use our perception of it that we give it some sense of meaning. Great work

I love the characterization of night that you create, through the shadows, the birds, and the element of time slowed in the depths of midnight. Your last lines bring such a hope to your tranquil piece. Thanks so much for sharing.
