Autumn Moon

On the invisible screen

upon celestial wings

twilight of autumn moon

swinging gracefully

wooing millions and zillions.

At times she veils behind

passing clouds teasing

all admiring glances.

Her raiment sways poetically

removing darkness from night.

She personifies romance

in the distinct of distance

flashing clandestine smile.

She is every poet’s dream

Who loves to cherish

her charisma in silence.

Every onlooker is in trance

when the dazzling display of vision

disrobes all illusory fantasy.

She envisages piousness.

A poesy beyond lyrical form

shines eternally in perfect milieu.
