Life Under the Moon

monsoon’s end
patches of emptiness
on the evening moon

sun bath
an eagle circles
the day moon

harvest moon
a path of lantern traffic
to the farm hill

harvest moon
taproot of a carrot
shows up red

full moon –
winter’s stillness
in a soap bubble

holding on
with what she left behind
winter moon

Late Autumn

Late autumn –
Evening twilight;
The market lane
herds of shoppers,
In front of her small hut,
she lays the
stainless steel vessels
on the mat…

She,
her hut,
her mat,
her vessels,
her hope –
Autumn ceasing
All over…

Late night –
The lane deepening into
deafening silence;
Spoon by spoon,
tiffin box by tiffin box,
plate by plate,
she carefully places them
inside the jute sack
knowing tomorrow will
dawn again.

When You Bring The Spring ~

Sweet spring from far away
Calls to me with a flowery smile,
But it’s going to be quite a while
Before I can even get away…

The clouds that hang over me
Are ready to burst anytime soon~
Behind them the waiting moon
Would have to wait until I see…

Summer days and simmering nights
Are dreams of wintry eves~
Only the colours of autumn leaves
Remain now as delights…

The handsome days are yet to rise
And I shall wait for you to bring
The smiles and songs of gentle spring,
To our love beneath the starry skies…

When you do bring them to me,
I shall build us a castle of dreams
That won’t crumble with loveless seams,
But will stay up for the world to see…
