one of Indian's most popular Telugu poems. Naani means an expression of one and all.
This week's challenge also has a certain theme to it!
I want you to write about a sunset!

Here are some ideas to get you started:

Bright
Orange
Horizon
Blinding
Beach
Love
Beautiful

I'm playing around with my made-up language and thought it would be fun to do a Naani in it. x]

Astra'na Superarú

Amor meu,
Astra'na superarú
P'ra te todocheri.
Speratte'm.

Translation:
My love
I'll surpass the stars
To reach you.
Wait for me.

An English One:

Unmapped

This expansive cosmos
Remains uncharted,
Let's map it together,
Wandering forever

A day ends in beauty,
In spite of its events.
To give hope,
For a bright tomorrow.

Sound shimmers
Echoing opalescent
A melody unparalleled
Striking chords of the soul

I wouldn't call you crimson,
Nor glory,
Nor bright
I would happily call you the beginning of the night.

The light of day
Fades within the night
That last ray
Its the last memorized

Sunset

Black horizon trimmed in red
Rays of golden light
Shine on technicolor clouds
Sunset yields to night.
