N – Night Sky!

A to Z Challenge – Nature and I

When life gets too overwhelming, just look up at the night sky and lose yourself for a while. – Deborah A Ten Brink

The torrents of emotions created a tempest within me.

I escaped home, to the sea, my refuge

The darkness of the impenetrable sky

the roar of the undulating waves, mirrored my perturbed mind.

With not a soul around, just me

I let the floodgates of incessant tears flow, merging into the salty waters.

The scintillating pregnant moon, appeared from behind the broody clouds,

she looked down at me with a loving smile.

Captivated by her warmth, I felt my tears dry.

Her benign radiance comforted my emotional ripples.

The dazzle of the luminous stars illuminated my heart,

serenading it, to complement the gleaming waters.

I sat there mesmerized beneath the surface of the night

feeling my pain being washed away until,

the promise of a new dawn embraced me, filling me with light!

The velvety stage is set, as twilight casts its veil

the halcyon breeze croons a musical melody

a poetic rhythm ensues as stars join the choir

the celestial party comes alive as

the luminous pearl makes a grand entry

flaunting its flamboyant florescence,

serenades the inky expanse with an

alchemy of its gleaming halo.

The Burj Khalifa, in Dubai is the world’s tallest building. Towering, gleaming and majestic it appears eager to kiss the sky. On our Dubai holiday, the visit to this skyscraper was definitely on the list. So excited I was stepping into the elevator, that I could literally hear my own heartbeat. Words fail to describe the dazzling view from the top. The city landscape appeared to have been studded with a glittering array of sparkling gems and stones against the night sky. The bright lights of the vehicles zipping past, looked as if the twinkling stars descended on earth. The breath-taking view from atop this human marvel, is etched in memory till date. Truly on top of the world feeling 🙂
