You, who smiles; You, who lights

#poem #SiddarthJain #you #smiles #lights #love #despair #darkness #relation #life

In this sea full of darkness,
I find you as a ray of light;
That shines so bright in the storm,
That even the wind ceases to be might.

I close my eyes to think of you,
And the water slides past my eyes;
Is it the fear from darkness,
Or it is your warmth that makes me cry.

I believe that I will see you again,
And pass my life one day at a time;
You don’t seem to appear outside my door,
No knock, no sound comes inside.

The day has come when you seem far,
Farther than I thought you could ever be;
I can’t remember your face so bright,
That helped me out from the middle of the sea.

And suddenly there was the sound,
And suddenly the time stood still;
As I peeked through the keyhole,
I found your face so bright that it sting.

I see you now, I remember you now,
I remember the feelings from the past;
You that helped me through the storm,
That storm, I thought, had overcome me again.

But you smile and light up the place,
And I can’t take off my eyes;
For I wish to savor this moment,
And save this till the end of time.

UK joins big switch-off for Earth Hour

#UK #EarthHour #Environment #ClimateChange #SaveElectricity #lights #international

Despite the terror attack, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben are joining more than 270 landmarks across the UK in switching off the lights for conservation charity WWF’s Earth Hour. The major landmarks include Buckingham Palace, Blackpool Tower, Brighton Pier, Senedd Building in Cardiff, Kelpies sculpture in Falkirk and Edinburgh Castle.

The Earth Hour will be celebrated all across the globe, starting in Samoa and ending 24 hours later in The Cook Islands, a time when more than 180 countries in the world will be participating together to send a message for Climate Change.

Apart from the major landmarks like Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, Kremlin, Egyptian Pyramids and Tokyo Tower participating in the event, members of the public are also being encouraged to take part in the event and switch off lights in their residence/offices for a period of time.

All you have to do is switch off your lights for one hour to join hundreds of millions around the world to send a clear signal that we must act and we must act now.
