The Silver Screen

Light slashes
A cover of darkness
From far above.

Giants walk,
Fairies sing,
Miracles happen.

An alternate reality
Mesmerizes the devout
Four times a day

@Vi: I had the traditional (and this is a thing of the past with multiplexes in India) where you'd have matinee + 3 shows.

Mesmerizes? Always? Liked this one all the same. And four times a day looks right :).

@pallavi: Thanks :-)

@Frissko: Perhaps it mesmerizes some more than others, but transport to another world it definitely does!

totally un-poetic continuation...

"But deep down it feels
Like Deja-vu,
Is this directorial genius?
This concept so new...

Then an epiphany,
And the neurons fire off
Nothing new here,
This, is but a hollywood rip-off!

(my apologies to bollywood fans)

@Sridhar: Apology accepted :-) Have to commend you on the completely poetic continuation.
