The Naked Night


In treasured richness
Night arrives
Waltz in the cloud
in sublimity....
In it's own innocence
Disintegrates ...
without struggle
Swims up gently
Against the caramel sky.
Penumbra of darkness
Outlives its ambit
Shaken…
mystified...
flickering in delirium, 
hardens
heightens 
naked silhouettes...


This is written for One Single Impression for the prompt "Naked"

    2. I agree with Indu..I had to read it many times to find the meanings and then put the meanings in place and get the essence of it. And need some thinking to fully understand what you are trying to say

  21. There is something called third dimension... in which people disappear though they exist...

    1. Thank you, Sathish for the metaphorical comment...Wow! But...let me admit, I was shocked initially when I read 'people disappear though they exist' as 'people disappear through the exit'---LOL...Thank God, I re-read it, and my patient understanding make me sooo happy now :))
      Glad you enjoyed the story, despite the hole ...Keep that 3D spectacle on, my friend!!:))))
      A big thanks for such a stupendous comment!!

  22. Hi Panchali Ji,

    It's always a pleasure to read your posts. A simple prompt of naked bursts out into a poetic rhythm of words and imagery. A very good take on the prompt.
    On the lookout for similar works like these. :)
