Streetlight


Streetlights shine down our way so we can walk safely and with definite direction. But their aging presence has become ignored by people who walk the same road every night. Is this going to happen to the streetlights of our lives one day?





Evanescing streetlight

At the crack of dawn

Its doting bathing of night

will not soon

End, but will forever keep on.



In those countless still nights ---

My repressed praises,

My lame cajole ---

My pointless bawls.



My driving with broken headlights

In a misty road's blind maze---

The lamp's brightness, a chiding gaze.



After this passing midnight

the sun wakes up to the tired street lamp.



--- My evanescent streetlight.

    A very true realization...! Indeed i never imagined the street light would be tired when the sun came up as if to relieve it of its duty...!!

    yes, our streetlights would be tired after the dark nights of our lives...and the sun saves their energy for yet another darkness in life..

    cheers!

    WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF POETRY: said...
    Excellent words,what we do without streetlights? I can well remember the old days when they had someone come around put them on each night (showing my age).

    Thanks for visiting My World.... much appreciated.

    Take care.

    You show how poetry opens up new perspectives on the ordinary things of life. Vivid suggestive imagery. Well done.

    Thank you for the words!

    The more our age progresses the more streetlights we see in the avenue of our lives....the lamps of wisdom and hope and faith...but sometimes, during the dark hours, some of them flicker and die out...

    And yes, I believe that with poetry, you can make those ordinary, often neglected things show their meaning and value.

    Cheers and hugs to all!
