Creative Work of Mylapore Children

 

Night Time

By Vibha Krishnakumar

The moon shines bright outside the window,
I lay on the bed and expect the expected,
And there it is – thoughts in my head a galore,
Thoughts bombarding in, ever so more!

The moon shines bright outside the window,
And peace prevails against its ultimate foe,
A wave of words, a strand of memories
of love, experiments and committed felonies.

The moon shines bright outside the window,
Eyes start closing, words grow slurry.
A few words, a small groan –
Oh one who makes young the grown!

The moon shines bright outside the window,
A figure comes in the room
And lovingly strokes my face,
Sits on my side and looks at Mother Moon’s gentle face.

Vibha lives in Alwarpet and is a student at Vidya Mandir, Senior Secondary School, Mylapore.
