October Sky

 As the sultry heat turns into a welcoming warmth
And the air around turns a tad crisper
And though the Sun is still strong,
A slight breeze placidly ruffles the hair
I look up at the October Sky...

As the wind hushes to you advent of the winter
And the evening sky is hued in temperate vermillion
As the weather alternates between pleasant and chill
In deciding over its choice of season
I look up at the October Sky...

As an airplane flies through the dead of the night
It takes me back by two years,
When perched on the railing of my balcony,
I’d waited for you and counted seconds there.
As I had looked up at the October Sky...

And as we lie beside each other,
With fire silently burning from afar,
With our backs on the sand bathed in the silver moonlight,
We make a wish upon a shooting star,
As we look up at the October Sky…


Made me dreamy on a khooni Monday morning... thanks for that :)
A grain of sand said…
I am glad that it did. It has made many a mornings beautiful :-)
