Day 14 - N for 'Nocturnal'


Nightly, in the quiet of the sphere,
Niftily, you creep in..
Nudging vitality that eludes the day,
Nurturing untold sources of impressions.
Numberless buds of cognition,
Nubs of engaging tales,
Narrating gaily, with bug eyed zeal,
Nuances of suggestions!
Nimbly you sneak in, tiptoeing to a commotion,
Notions spark banishing the slumber,
Nursing brisk bustle in the brains.
Need for caffeine never arises,
Nuisance you are, for naps diffuse, into
Numerous little bits of spasms
Noting down nonsensical scrawls.

  7. First of all , this ain't a "nonsensical scrawl" at all ;-) Second , you summed up the nuances of a restless soul so beautifully ...my poem today was also about night ...maybe two great insane minds think alike ;-)

  13. I wish when the dreams and "N"ightmares creep in, I have the ability to record them or even remember them the next day. Niftily they slink away too.

    Waiting for "o" Laxmi!
