Longing #Poetry


I’ve watched this sky everyday
Hoping it’ll show me these colours
Once again
This confluence of aquamarine and baby pink
That merge almost effortlessly
Yet stay apart, distinctly.

I watch this sky today
And miss you every moment of every waking day
I long to sit by you
Pour out my heart
Watch as you listen
And lift me up
Like the sky that bears
The gentle pink clouds.

I will watch this sky everyday
And with all my soul, pray
That the Universe will bring you back
And let us be together
Inseparable, come what may.

    1. I think it connects us with who we really are, unaffected and untouched by the trials of life. We have much to be thankful for. Thanks Mithila 🙂

    1. Sigh. I know what you mean. It gets harder each time they leave too. But, bright side, you’re with him now and I couldn’t be happier for you 🙂

  1. Oh yes, sky watching. I love it too. I love the myriad hues we experience and that way we are so lucky to be living in Bangalore. I take evening walks and the sky really enchants. 🙂

  2. Loved the analogy of the blue skies meeting the pink clouds feel as if two people just met.
    I love looking for colours in the sky and relating them to the shades that were when special moments of my life happened.
    Beautifully written 🙂

    1. I love watching Nature! It’s a balm to the soul, it really is 🙂 It’s very inspiring too in the way it helps me write and put thoughts down. We don’t really need too much, do we?

      Thanks for reading 🙂
