Eclipsed Letters

Intermingled threads of my fantasies pour from the ink of my love on the bare soul of the letter I write for you, my beloved The windowpane sparkles moonlit dreams And I submerge into my visions of you You, my moon bound to your services Make me wonder how I would write All the love-soaked words I've never said I had questions that submerged in tides Propelled by divine celestial waves I forgot to savor the fragrance of lilies That intertwine into my desolate bed stand Perhaps you will be gulping your tea When this letter relishes the touch Of your frozen fingers looking for warmth You might inhale the aroma of my love Dripped in my waxing and waning hopes Rosy shades of mellowed sunrise Prompt my hopes to flutter and fly Away to a land where you reside I have spent last night tossing them In solicitude of your awaited letter My feet took a hundred strides to the door that I opened warily I await your reply to quench my love I am the sun that follows her moon Eclipsed by unending galactic cycles Let me drape myself in your love Let your letter wait at the corner Until I've told you my anxiety faded away I've been onlooking the desert roads Oh should I merge into them in daylight To kiss the path your letter traverses This time I hope it remembers at last My name and address on this frayed street Let it bring to me your smooth embrace The sun, exhausted of the chase for moon Over these centuries, awaits the end of eclipse Drenched in my fears I whisper at sunset, "Let my love engulf me in soothing waves" ....The sun and the moon in a golden Aurora, unite, Your letter arrives before you colored in lilac twilight. *A tribute to the tumultuous emotions of a soldier's wife* May 26, 2020 The Sun And The Moon Poetry Contest Sponsor: Chantelle Anne Cooke ~~Premiere Contest Winner: 4th Place BRIAN'S CHOICE V,any form,any theme Contest ~~Winner: First Place

I can tell this one took so much care and thought to write, Aditi. Are you a soldier's wife? You have made it so real. The images of sun and moon chasing each other without catching up adds so much gravitas to the tale. "The waxing and waning hopes" is just brilliant. I loved "My feet took a hundred strides to the door that I opened warily" - that describes so well the anxiety and dashed hopes... yet what an ending. Keep writing, poetess! Congratulations on your wins. Many blessings ~ John

I am not a soldier's wife. I had been a part of the services for a short duration before I quit for a few reasons and joined the corporate for some time and then aviation at last. But I could feel the angst of separation at many instances. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement dear friend. You inspire me to write more. God bless you John :)
