Poem: Moonlight's Serenade

Source

A milky cake

Brimful with Glow,

Full today,

Gone tomorrow.


‘Tis fickle Love,

Whence lovers apart;

Status-quo and sorrow –

Midst they depart.


Lo! Loony is thy Moonlight,

Nay, insane;

Plays a serenade,

Hey, all in vain?


She enhances the Splendour

Of thy glow;

Enrapturing the sky,

And stars to bow.


Her Mighty Energy

Leaves thee enamoured;

Sheer breathless,

Thou turn well-mannered.


The King then fathoms,

The separation of Queen;

Yields and Oaths;

To never be mean.

Great Poem. A bit ephemeral in the beginning, like the Buddha's teaching: Transient, fleeting ... but returned to the adoration.

Began as a wonderful metaphor of all things sentient. Exquisite! My moonlight disciple, get some sleep!

The opening stanza beautifully describes the impermanence of life. A lovely poem full of beautiful images!

Manatita,

Hahaha. You are keeping one Torontorian clock in UK it seems!

Thank you. I appreciate your feedback. I tried to explain how important is the company of a woman in a man's life. As they say... behind every successful man, there is a woman. Not sure if I was able to convey the message. Oh well... good morning. Peace.

Shaloo,

What a keen observation! In fact, I didn't think about this. Yes, nothing is permanent, my dear. Lots of love and hugs.

Michael, my friend, thanks for your kind gesture. Alas! I've failed to convey my message. This is not a nice poetry in my eyes.

Nice poem about relationship gone sore.

you aren't sentimental, thence

your love's experimental.

I was the prior, since,

You were the later.

I got entangled unaware, hence

I better take care, be aware,

what you are.

Check my poem "Friend who left" for an answer.

Hahaha. Hari, I couldn't stop laughing at your comment. Everyone had their own interpretations on this poem. Just to mention - I have never had any bitter relationship with anyone. I see God in everyone. This poem is just to convey a message that never forget the value of the one who values you a lot.. like moonlight adores moon and moon values moonlight.

I am sentimental though,

And yet rational too;

Like two sides

Of a coin

I'm in

Awe.

I will check your poem once I get back to home. I'm in the office. I am responding through cellphone. Cheers! Jai Siya Ram.

Surabhi,

Based on your poem, my reply is general in its intent. Great poem you have written. Kudos.

I thought this poem captured moonlight beautifully. Who doesn't marvel at the moon, I certainly do... When I read your poetry, it seems I constantly search for just the right word to describe your words. It seems it's always there in my head, yet I can't find it. I'll start swinging words around like; butter? sweet? I know, silk...your words are as smooth and soft as silk! That's it!

This is a very pretty poem as always, Surabhi. :)
