THE MOON TODAY……~by Rajendra Padhi


 

 

THE MOON TODAY……

The moon today is a criminal
Hidden behind the frisky clouds,
Appears and disappears lately
Fears to be handcuffed in thoughts.

The moon today is a woman
Secretly slipping off from arms,
Looks at me in her sky like eyes
Glitter for a while for her lover.

The moon today is my dream
Dimmed out faceless like a ghost,
I scream running in eerie night
Like a fawn chased by a tiger.

The moon today is my mind
Turns me travelling pointlessly,
Thoughts piling up like clouds
The sky so dark for insight into it.

I walk deeper into darkness
The moon is lost like my past,
I remember the silvery nights
Bright like truth, shadowy like lies.

Composed and copy right by Rajendra k. Padhi
