Navanita Medhi

The setting sun still glitters

making a panorama of colours

in the western sky,

the river smiles

at the scintillating reflections

on it’s waters,

the birds are returning home

displaying beautiful scenes,

the hills are becoming darker

at a distance,

the evening star is showing

a brilliant glance,

the cool air around

is carrying the message (that)

yet another day

is going to be added

in the pages

of  life’s  history.
