A Star Converses With One Particular Star All Night Long

My eyes are sleep-laden,

I return home taking with me songs of fallen crops!

Everything held secret is gone, — how long a dream lasts?

The sunset returned with its rose hue, —it does not resemble one!

Two stars conversed all night long,

Our face remains on earth all night long!

The night has progressed well,

Yet, I hardly felt it all these years!

Those who I never saw in daylight, — they all came in gloaming’s time;

The ones I never saw in the dust of the road – in smoke – among the crowd —

In my dream, I heard splash of water in the container, — the sound of bangles!

Under the night sky, I discovered them – aided by starlight!

My eyes were all awake

I witnessed many colored-cloud-cover skies in the twilight and before the sunrise!

Alone, I returned to the rustic crop field so many days!

I tiptoed in a shady day by myself only like a flouncing butterfly

For so many a time! —In many inauspicious time, covering the meandering path

My trance ended, — the playhouse of my imagination came tumbling down.

Both my eyes are sleep-laden

I return home taking with me songs of fallen crops!

Everything held secret is gone, —how long a dream lasts?

The sunset returned with its rose hue, — it does not resemble one!

Two stars conversed all night long.
