New Nitelight

Under the starlit sky the rowboat moves

East or West the lone sailor doesn’t know

Horizon beckons from beyond the shade of purple water 

Calm and serene lies the ocean beneath

The old rickety boat burdened with dead tons

Years and years of happiness and misery

The boat is heavy....... its heart burdened

With the thought of drowning in ocean grave

Yet Hope swells like sea swells in shinier times

Each day I scan the vastness of the ocean on which I sail

Trying from sunrise to sunset to perceive some change

Alas the morning and setting sun look almost the same

Makes me truly wonder if my mind is playing a game

Sometimes I go to sleep and wake up at sunset and wonder                      

If it is sunrise or sunset? I look out for the fluttering sea birds

When I hear none I feel it’s time to drown in my words                   

All days are the same at sea .. all nights the same in the ocean

Tiny ripples, violent storms are the only changes which I can see

So I stop thinking of “old” and “new” and let things be

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
