From my window seat

Of all the countless stars I see
And the dim lights across the field
And the stations carelessly passed
I finally breathe.

When you’re rushing, rushing
against time
And then you look up at the sky
Of all the countless stars you see
One shines bright.

Across the moors there is a frail
road; a lone bike stands by
Staring at the passing train
The calves graze on
Unperturbed, .

A dim lantern keeps its stand
Protector of the muddy homes
Kingdom under thatched roofs –
Of all the darkness that I see
I see you, if I close my eyes.

Sleepless night of sleepy eyes
Herb and water sits by my side.
The train halts as dawn
Creeps in.
I order two butter omelette fries.

Writing201:Poetry – DAY 2

I’m not someone who travels a lot or writes limerick for that instance. Hence, today’s challenge proved to be a tad bit difficult for me. But anyway, I tried writing my limerick about a 3 day journey where at the end of it, the narrator was awfully glad to be back home (and slept all day). 😀

Monday morning I packed my bag.
The next day spent in jet lag.
Traveller of night,
My Wednesday bright;
Tip-toed home and slept on my rag.
