"The Night..." (of 'My Life...')

Posted by
Pavan Kaul (Mumbai, India) on 27 June 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The third image from my trilogy on 'My Life..', representing the final years, death and release of the soul from the confines of this mortal body....

"In The Silence Of The Night"
In the silence of the night
I will come to you
In the silence of the night
I will lie with you
In the silence of the night
Your dreams will be fulfilled
In the silence of the night

In the beauty of the night
I will be gentle with you
In the beauty of the night
Two hearts will beat as one
In the beauty of the night
Our love will be fulfulled
In the beauty of the night

In the sorrow of your night
I will cherish you
In the sorrow of your night
Two minds will think as one
In the sorrow of your night
Our love will be consumated
In the sorrow of your night

In the glory of our night
I will pleasure you
In the glory of our night
Two spirits will coalesce
In the glory of our night
Our love will be eternal
In the glory of our night.

..representing the last years and death .. so no wonder the most part of it is hidden and unknown .

A little sad and dismal... yet so beautifully poetic! Amazing shot and amazing trilogy, Pavan!!! So the night of one's life has fallen, but the dawn of another will arrive, I have been wondering...

Christine Walsh from Astoria, NY, United States

The poem is a wonderful addition to the photo. Although the photo is lovely, are we to think that the last part of life is filled with misty darkness? or does the mist lead us to the next life? Such deep questions in one photo. :)

DowsherVision from PARIS, France

The Night of My Life is terrific, my favorite of this serie I guess.
I can't figure out if it's colored or B&W, anyway the less light the more B&W (even with our own eyes).
Great capture.

This is such a lovely soft and brilliant image. You've found a way to present the darkness as an acceptable spiritual change of life. Love this - and the readings.

Dutçh from Chicagoland, United States

A very Lord of the Rings feel to this one in the sense of the volcano.. the power.. the dreaminess.. I liked the trilogy for the way it provokes the mind to think rather than sharply defining everything.

Christel from Köln, Germany

Good evening, Pavan,
it is a very gloomy picture. The fog enhances the overall view and makes it look scary. Have a nice evening and all the best. Sincerely Christel
