I was in a thrill
While watching the beauty
Of the diminishing Sun, and
Feeling that the darkness would
Slowly engulf everything.
The returning birds
Had eloped from the sky
With their soul mates.
The last of the fading sun beams too
Were in a hurry
To touch only the top of the trees.
Only I was there,
Watching and waiting
While standing amid the flowers and trees.
The diminishing Sun,
Was trying to hide and go away,
Knowing that the night would slowly
Approach without stopping and
Would remain there,
Till the sunrays eliminates the darkness,
By its sunbeams and light next morning.
The colorful clouds in the sky,
Were hovering all around the sun
Making that evening,
An evening of some memorable moments
In that serene quietness, I was trying to hear,
The melodious singing of the loving birds.
To make it more enchanting,
Became active to play their music,
Watching the fast approaching night,
And no one to disturb, their mighty kingdom.
Suddenly I felt a touch of soft cool breeze,
As if, it was was trying to console me,
Do not worry “I am with you”
