My first poem on this account.
"Shiver"...resembles shiver due to cold. Read it yourself and let me know how you feel:)


Its such a beautiful evening

and a canary flies by

sings a lovely song for me

and dives into the oceanic sky

The blazing sun is its heart

whose warmth kisses my face

I open my arms wide

so that its sweetness I could taste

The humid breeze I inhale

Reminds me of earthy rains

The smell of it dissolves my pain

I close my eyes and inhale again

the shower of drops fall atlast

Drizzling as the sky cries

I look up at the clouds

Which now cover the heart of skies

The wind makes me shiver

and the thunder once more

I pull my blanket on

and shut my eyes close

The wondrous dream I dream

of playing soccer in the rain

I am muddy wet with marshy stains

Out of cold I shiver again

Next what I hear is chirping birds

telling me,"Its Time!"

The time you wake up and see

seven bands of colors in the sky

I raise my hands as if to touch

but I couldn't, its only play of light

Its so beautiful, leaves me breathless

As I gaze into the sky

With thudding of my steps I run down

My bare feet touching the cold, moist ground

The wind blows, I SHIVER again

Wondering, 'how big is the space bound!'
