Do I hear the guitar strings In the silence of the night

One string a step forward Another a step backwards

Is it just my ears ringing

Is it a note near or is it a little afar

In the silence of the night …

The tune slows, the tune fades

The tune tries, the tune halts

The note rises, the note drops

In the silence of the night…

The note is near, yet afar

In the silence of the night …

The tune will smile, the tune will laugh

The note will cry, the note will scream

The note will float, the note will merge

In the silence of the night

Somewhere beyond the sky and the earth

Somewhere there will not be any questions

Somewhere there will not be any seeking answers

Somewhere there will be smiles in tears and somewhere tears in smile

Somewhere life will be dream, somewhere dream will all that be

Somewhere the sky will laugh, somewhere the sea will smile

Somewhere the clouds will swim, somewhere the waves will fly

Somewhere me, the sky and the earth and me will be just me

“Somewhere beyond right and wrong, there is a garden. I will meet you there.”…Rumi

Stories dipped in twilight colors

Stories thru’ time…

Returning from our childhood games, reluctantly…

The hour for Ma to be home

The wait at the gate and finally her sight…

The lights and the lamps, the sound of the conch

The wait for some snacks, the wait for some gift,
