Crave for caves
When in woods I walk at twilight,
Nature swims within our eyes.
Secret of the night brings delight.
When ocean winds caress my face,
Smell of the sea fills my lungs
Like the joy of first embrace.
When the clouds are out of view,
Spider concealing knits her web,
Leaves sleep blanketed with due,
Cities countless commotion ebb,
Archaic moon speaks of ancient love,
The night weaves a velvet glove.
When twitter of the woodland bird,
The rush of the raging copper sea
The roaming of the deer heard,
The lush green emerald forestry,
Spin a web of symphony.
I am free.
Like daffodils singing with heads flinging.
Eyes a glaze in amaze.
Orchestra of glow-worms twinkle,
Heartbeats in synchrony tinkle,
My soul craves for the cave
To join the free and the brave.
