The Drop Of The Night Sky

Kshipra is a student pursuing masters from JNU, India. She loves reading and writing poetry and wants to publish her poems someday.


I am the amaya of night sky

Gushing on the window panes

Trying to find stability in the dark

Immensely, spectacularly flowing in vain.

Perhaps, I am still learning a lesson,

that life is not a smooth ride

You fall on the thorns, you bleed

You hang over moon,you resuscitate

At times you hang in between,

Like eagerness of a half turned page!

There's no meaning in this book,

that I have created for myself

And yet I persuade it to be found

Half of me is still in the air !

And half of me is still on the ground!

This awe inspiring journey of mine,

of travelling through the heavens and hell,

is stuck now on the panes of glass

I have no figments to make me swell

At a new juncture that I arrive

Reveries stand down and withered,

I will be hereby tested in night sky,

In the moments, unhindered, unfettered.

I the amaya, the bravest drop ,

Will have no acquaintance on the pane

Will have to lift me up myself

To fetch me a name…

The window is harsh and tough

The skies are dark and plain

I am the drop of a sangfroid sun

Bleeding through ordeals

Carrying only jest of life

stronger shall be my strides

and louder shall be my paean!

Great poem, Kshipra Pal,

You make the reader hopeful for the drop in the night. You tap into struggles using powerful images and descriptive language with clarity and potency.

Beautiful, moving, and engaging.

Much respect and admiration,

I loved the whole poem for its style. And I emphasize these verses;

"that life is not a smooth ride

You fall on the thorns, you bleed

You hang over moon,you resuscitate"

What an interesting poem, Kshipra. I need to reread it a few times to get the true meaning and I admit you have even used a couple of words I am unfamiliar with. I will look them up. Nice job.
