An Unknown Glitterati

Illuminated is the whole arena, phenomenal is the glamour;
Who’s coming tonight? For whom is this fervour?

Stars are studded all along, all are waiting in this barren;
From which direction will he come? What’ll be his path?

Is he a spirit or a human, how could a wanderer know?
In this isolation who’s lighted lamps? Who owns this place?

Often, one’s acumen is valued by the assemblage one keeps;
It’s a fact, even then, lemme know whose gaiety is this?

Light has descended from the chariot of a sapphire evening;
Wearing anklets of rays whose shadow is it? Who’s in my view?

That must be someone’s beloved, must be a glitterati;
Tonight stars will surpass darkness, wonder, whose caravan is it?

    the design is great! first, there is the statement, and then it is qualified by an open question. This adds beauty and resonance to the theme and texture of the poem.
