Gliding Moon

The gliding moon
hanging on a glistening thread
clung to the pewter clouds
oscillating between moments of serenity and abstract of darkness
shimmering hope
through the short burst of moonlit

The Obscure Moon

Sparkling shine from the distant moon
transcended her shadow
from a faraway place
reflecting her vivid glow
in the pristine water on a distant lake

And the gentle ripples on the waterbed
quietly oscillated her deviant visage
and slowly it unveiled
much artistry submerged in her vicious chimes
exposing her aberrant smiles
the mystic shades, one at a time

More he tried to decipher
further convoluted it became
robbing away his transient peace
snatching away his balance and rhythm

And as he stretched his hands
to confirm whether she was for real
the moon hid behind the grays
leaving his anxious soul
in an absolute dismay

Silence in Chaos

And your soul,
like the soothing moonlight,
the white shroud in an otherwise silhouette night,
under such aura many hearts melts, basking in glory,
drenched in love,
nurturing the faith,
that bonds the earth to the moon,
the moon to the sun,
and the sun to the epitome of the celestial shine,
life smiles in obscurity,
pain subsides in disdain times,
and skies still embrace us
keeping our beliefs alive

Promontory Rock

She stood strong
like the promontory rock
jutting out from the rough sea
standing for time immoral
battering the gale, the storm
and the high tides
during the full moon nights

And during the sun-kissed days
it battled with no respite
while the waves slapped its face
it stood tall exuding divine grace
and with defiant hope
it waited for the day
when a wandering seagull
would rest its wings
on its knoll
after a long haul flight
and when with perched eyes
it would gaze the horizon
mapping the pathway
to resume the flight
before the fall of the night

Until then the cape would provide
the seagull comfort and love
before it would soar away
consumed by its wanderlust
with the hope that it would
one day come back to the promontory rock

Never Lose Hope

Don’t lose hope
when the nights are dark,
for the moon has just
transiently smeared
in some celestial smite

But soon the darkness
will dissolve
and brightness will regain
its shimmering light
