Today is the fifth day of NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo. The prompt (optional) today is to write a poem that is based in the natural world: it could be about a particular plant, animal, or a particular landscape. But it should be about a slice of the natural world that you have personally experienced and optimally, one that you have experienced often.

I am not sure if I adhered to the prompt, but this is what I penned down today. 

The poem highlights perspective of two different bodies, at the same moment of time.


Every night I glance up the sky

with teary eyes

probing for you

aching to be with you

But I find you immersed

in magnificence

of your new universe

up in the celestials

I can fathom you nattering merrily

I can see you twinkling blissfully

while I crave for a smile

I long for those words

I yearn for that look

Every night when I glance up the sky


Every night I twinkle in the sky

with tearful eyes

with grieving heart

with a hope to see you smile

But I find you lost in time

probing for me

with inquisitive eyes

with wounded heart

with no glee

no smile

Every night when I twinkle in the sky
