Waxing (Poetic?)


On your full moon night:

I marvel at how
You entrance

Blemishless, distant,
I think.
Yet, I know, fact says different.
I’d rather be poetic-
For nothing else can I be
When you adorn in
Simple gold.
Tonight, I shall enslave
Myself, in you.
You make me think in clichés
In much-used, oft forgotten similes
All revived, when you finally come
Into your own
Every twenty-eight days
That’s an interesting number
Veiled in references of a vulnerability-
Veiled in- and from.
Beauty that must be hidden;
But can never be held back,
So you tell me
As you climb, in your
Slow orbit.
Only, today we are in orbit-
Awed by your magnificence.
And so, you out-climb
Out-shine those grey wisps
That would confine.
For how do they know-
From you, off you, shines
That brightness – which,
No matter how they try-
They never shall steal.
Not tonight.
And, as brighter yet
You pour your light-
Lighter yet, my heart is…
Pushing aside
Clinging cobwebs
Of an oppressed, submissive me.
Shine on, dear heart-
And so shall I.
This night.

When the full moon shone, on 19th Sept, 2013, dispelling those grey grey clouds; and I could not help but wax eloquent 🙂

  1. Although your poem is great but the title is very misleading. I came here thinking that I will be reading about screams. 😛

  2. The moon says
    This waxing and waning that you see
    is because of where you are when you look at me
    or is it because of where I am when I look at thee
    for every night and day, I am full, happy and free
    veiled or unveiled, whether others agree or disagree
    Always happy you too should be.

    Nice poem and excellent photos. So how are the paper corrections coming on teacher? 🙂

    • Govind, thank you 🙂 Sorry for the extremely late reply. Paper corrections are never done, though the exam papers are over and done with – and the report cards, thankfully. Till the next end of term session, only, though!


  3. This is a melody of thoughts 🙂
