The Attires of Heaven

Caren Mascarenhas 

In maple skies
With a million dreams
And the city lights
With silenced screams

In velvety skies
With a heart full of hope
And damask roses
With promises unkept and broke

In violaceous skies
With stars streaming of souls
And the world is asleep
Whilst you dream alone

Changing colours in the hurricane of emotions
Setting apart the wild, free and young.
Painting a picture of a different kind
Natural filters with a stroke of light
And a gust of zephyr floating in your mind

In a thousand colours the sky shall speak
One amongst them is different, one amongst them is yours to keep
