A stunning beauty seen with moles on the cheek from a distance
If be near, like spaceman, we find dry lowland area of dark rock,
Shadows in holes where meteors hit, left craters, the Sun can’t hit.
She relies on the Sun for light, the borrowed light throws on others
And patronizes God-punished murderer Cain, adorned with horns
Becoming more luring in getting the dark spots of Cain’s horns.
As all of us hold secrets, never telling it to others
She never ever shows her darker side to anyone of us
We the poets, lovers, get enchanted, mad by this lunar beauty
** God put Carn for murdering his own brother adorning with horns on the Moon
as a punishment. Sometimes the dark spots on the moon looks like horns.
*, wabi-sabi is Japanese word meaning “to find beauty in imperfection
and profundity in nature*”
