Pleasures of Moving on Moon

Pleasures of Moving on Moon

You have always charmed us by your beauty, O Moon,
Sometimes fascinating Heer and Ranjha*, and sometimes,
Mesmerizing Romeo and Juliet.

Sometimes you have spread your charms, on the monuments of Love, 
Alluring the beauty of Taj*, in the full moon light of Purnamasi*
O, Moon how many faces of Love and Beauty you have,
When you stroll silently on a snow covered maintain,
The beauty and your grandeur becomes envy for the heaven.

For Poets and Writers you have immense stories and inspirations,
For Lovers you are more precious than gold and diamond,
For singers you are like the soul of their songs,
For Boatman’s, you are their sole companion of their silence and turbulence.

While watching you so intensely from earth,
I felt, as if I was wondering on the silver surface of you O, Moon,
Moving and feeling, no gush of wind,
No moisture of Rains and dryness of Sun,
No falling of leaves, in the season of Autumn,
No bending of rivers, flowing from mountains to oceans
No murmuring of birds while mating and chatting,
No change of seasons to engage my mind and heart,
Still I was fascinating to move on the silver surface of you, O Moon.

Walking on your surface was a strange experience for me O, dear Moon,
As I was trying to feel the unique pleasures of earth, 
While moving on your silvr surface, O Moon.

Soon I will post this as My Photo Poem with the Photograph of Moon on my Blog and on face
book, which I took on 22nd Nov. 2010

•	Heer and Rangha. The Indian Lovers like Romeo and Juliet 
•	Purnamasi.      The Day as per Indian calendar, when we can see the full Moon.
•	Taj.                  Refers to the world famous Taj Mehal monument of Agra, India.

    This is really well written, Ravindra. I like the way you describe all of the things we associate with the moon while telling us something about India's culture too. Best to you, Diane

    What a wonderful tribute to the eternal symbol that guides sailors and makes lovers' hearts beat faster, Ravindra!! I appreciate the way you share your culture with us; I'd never heard of Heer and Rangha or knew they were lovers like Romeo and Juliet. I recall Juliet asking Romeo not to pledge his love by the "inconstant" move which changes shapes and sometimes disappears. A favorite for me, my friend. Wishing you peace and blessings. Love, Carolyn

    How lovely this ode to the moon, mezmorizing and hypnotic as we sit beneath her light and dream of someday knowing more of this mysterious place in space. I will love seeing the photograph you choose to go with this wonderful poem. It has a song like quality!
