Winter sunset

sunset…..evening and night

by Ritty Patnaik

the sun,
clad in fiery orange, russet
returned, with glee
to be home,
behind the mountains.
whispered, to the trees,
serene mountains,
and the tired breeze,
to rest awhile!
and to the flowing stream,
to have a peaceful night!

the valley
prepared itself to sleep,
in the crisp lightness
of a winter evening.
the butterflies
had sauntered home,
the cacophony, and drill,
of the chirpy birds,
was missing in the field,
and the trees,
with a final rustle,
settled for the night,
peace prevailed,
sun went down,
it was dusk.

the ink of darkness,
got merged
in the ethereal black
of the darkened sky.

creating an aura of silence,
and a color stain,
in the black beauty,
of the night.
some dark feelings
ignited in the mind,
some dark memories,
frisked the heart

I wondered
from where did they come?

as the mountain, the streams,
all went to sleep,
in the lap,
of mother nature.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and blessed holiday season.

Merry Christmas!
