Ode to Autumn

Earth’s sphere of fire bids adieu to me

As dying embers gleam across the sea

In rare hues reflected by autumn trees,

Swirling in motion with October’s breeze.

I feel the joy this season has to share

In golden harvest that the branches bear,

And I am thankful for this blessed year,

For divine abundance I share so dear.

The sun and moon take on a special glow

As thunder clouds move swiftly with the flow.

Yes, autumn coaxes feelings to revive,

Those mem’ries of past seasons still alive.

When autumn spreads her dress of lacey frost

I know, in breathless beauty, I’ll be lost.

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.

Kanpur India 22nd November 2010
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.

Ode To Nature

Oh giver of life, you glorious Sun, 
You instinctively know what must be done.
I bask in your warmth to gain energy; 
Marvel how you raise up each plant and tree.

You, gracious Moon ever watchful at night
Even aware when your eye is closed tight.
You sway our emotions, also the sea; 
Cause turmoil at times or tranquility.

I love you Earth and all of your creatures.
There's joy in knowing you are our teachers.
I will, to treat you with respect and care
And pray that the world will become aware

When we poison you, we poison us too. 
Keeping you balanced will grow life anew.
We are blessed with Earth, sea, wind and fire; 
Ether, divine, our longing desire

Helps us to treasure our blessings on Earth
And love that's bestowed when given our birth.
So embrace loyal Sun and moody Moon
As sweet Nature sings her loveliest tune.

The Moon

cradled in the arms of night
silent still
through tattered veils of evening cloud
she peers
her silver face  kissed lovers in ancient times
and lit the even fields of a winter’s soul
perfect, white, eternal
rise above that cloak of darkness
show the way to those who wander
in the longest of nights
bright lantern of hope
glorious and everlasting..

Moon Ode

Moon you serenade me nightly
casting your beaming silvery rays
touching and filling my weary soul
with  awesome magical perfection

Watching you in your various phases
crescent sliver you delight and enchant
yet too your half sends heartfelt shivers  
as you wax your way to full glowing light

moon dear moon you rule my senses
as you wane,  the sea's tides join you
making my moods shift with your cycles
your whims commanding earth herself

I serenade and worship your beauty
disliking intensely nights you are cloaked
when clouds hid you from earthly sight
then with a peek you emerge triumphant

And  now once more my heart rejoices

Blood Moon

                                 Appearance like Blood,
                      Your beauty washes over me like a flood.
                                   Truly Mesmerizing,
              Watching you before the sun climbs over the horizon,
                         This occurrence is really surprising.
                          Even tho your emergence is brief,
                          Your display has brought me relief.
                            But time is drawing to a close,
                          with that I must bid you goodbye,
                         Thank you for this speechless show.

beauty, blessing, January, magic, moon, sunset, winter


‘Bastille’ winter-lodes wait anticipating the reserved and affected invasions of the sun’s setting rays, to lay its' mark upon her surrounding ice-capped winter hood--- 
Fortifying ‘arms’ now stand saluting at attention to the expected deluges to carnival delights from the setting sun….
Applause from ‘knightly’ lances carry a shadow-display, when brought to arms; 
'toe-elbowing' their stances to a light bright multiplexed review….
Eventide’s soon to reach cosmic nighttime ceilings and is brought momentarily to stands aside, to hushed warnings off snow iced platforms gaining cheery fire-light at each kissed by-pass retreat….  
At devotion ‘arms’ stretch their winter façades 'drawing' close their 'painted' ‘four o’clock’ shadows; that mark out each stance---
Alas, the playhouse ‘adieus’ end with sad commendations; when staged dimmed lights snuff and flicker out to blackness.
Nighttime slants and an interval is at hand, for waning sun’s rays, to dismiss their stationed sentinels over to moonlit beamed doom--- 
Night plagues with harmonizing rhythms; as ice-tinkling ‘icicles’ from branches high salute the night time, sky-faerie's lite and dance upon a new stage!

Silver Mist

Silver shot mist obscures the moon
as it hangs high in the night sky.
Radiating its light, only for it
to be reflected and fractured.

Pitch black is the night, yet also
scattered rays highlight things.
Bringing a sense of mystic
to the still silent night.

Orb of silver you enthral
as you glide and slide.
Forcefully trying to break free
and soar once more in open skies.

Stepping out of the woods
Twigs snap breaking the silence underneath my feet
I see the darkness shrinks when the moon smiles
The light of a lover's beam, the warmth of your love illuminates
My thoughts are instantly wrapped up in your blanket of stars
Sprinkled across the Milky Way,  glazed with honey all over
Lady of the Moon, you return to earth for one visit
Shadows fade when you appear within a circle of radiance
I feel at ease as I hear your voice fills the silent night
Gentle echoes rippling in the wind, it carries your message in a serenade
Landing lovely images in my mind
In my deepest memory you lay down your name
Once a long lost echo, now found inside this space
In the cradle of the lunar lullaby, you stand before me
Dressed in pearl silk satin, your smile, an ivory white
I become drawn to you, a lifetime of treasures in one glance
You are the mysterious beauty who makes me smile
Beaming beautiful in silver candlelight, I whisper your name
Somewhere on a cold winter's night, a lonely wolf admires the same moon
Looking on with misty eyes, a thirst and hunger grows from within
It howls a signal into the distance, searching for love
In a hollow valley, where echoes do not bounce back
Where starlight cries and leaves a trail of red fiery dust
Dampened by the teardrops of morning dew, the moon disappears

To The Moon

Usually after the sun's disappear
weary birds return their nests,
tired workers close day-works
all get back respective home,
the house wives make dinner
silently the night falls on them
and on the soft grey earth
closing and opening another part.

Then in the far vast blue sky
you appear as an ever lamp
to start on burning yourself
to shine dark and mortal earth
with your silvery cool light
for the whole and long night,
as a guard rounds the ground 
oh! you are lonely destined.

People think of that is for
the rules of eternal system,
but I ask you some questions
whom are you looking for?
in the wilderness of the earth,
why are you conservative?
of the light of your other side,
why do you swell the seas?
The seas roar on the beach,
why do you wrong yourself?
in expanding and reducing.
how long are you there? when
lots of stars, meteors, fall down
you are alone for long waiting
with austere attempt as a saint
where is your companion?
to share your inner bitter pain.

You see here some real facts
in your silvery lean and light
grey owls hunt feared rats,
black bats eat laboured fruits,
white swans flirt in old pond
odd nocturnal birds fly away
flapping their long weary wings.

You hear rivers sweet murmur
but monstrous seas cruelly roar,
you see hungry high waves
constantly fall on the beaches;
your companion has been taken 
and killed by the hungry ocean
so, you see only the ghost of her
but you will get no one, no more.

Shes Beautiful Like The Moon, Part 1

Staring up at the moon 
She seems so sad 
Alone in a silent black blue sky
She sits and waits 
I look on with remorse 
As she slowly sinks 
Wish I was a rocket man 
For her I would do anything
Morning light breaks 
Now she's gone 
And i'm alone 
so I sit and wait...

I wish I could float up
And kiss the moon
Such a beautiful pearl in the night sky
Is lunar on her sentry duties

She cast a warm and haunting glow
On us all below
She makes the shadows seem alive
Enchanting the woods as the mist rolls in 

Lunar my goodness of the night
Thank you 
Your presence fills me with such expectant joy
I know not what the night you herald
Will bring 

The wolves howl
The owls hoot
The frogs croak
Night time can be so noisy 
They all wish to say hello
So they sing 

Waxing or waning
As you rise to your perch
You glow most beautifully 

Luna my beacon in the far away sky
I thank you for blessing us
And keeping us safe at night

Ode To A Blueberry Roan

I was heading to the bunkhouse, after a wild night on the town
dancing & romancing & one too many round
Back in my wild & woolly days, one more rowdy Saturday night
full of cheap beer & whiskey & the necessary fight
I set Ol' Gus on auto pilot, he knew the way back to the spread
And I set to fighting with those rotgut demons dancing in my head
We were getting pretty close to home, so I eased up on the bit
when all of a sudden that dang horse he up & quit
His ears were all pricked forward, listening quite intense
I caught a drift of what might pass for music, somewhere beyond the fence
It took a lot of persuading, cussing & cajoling
but I got ol' Gus headed for all the caterwauling 
the sound got more peculiar as we crested the hill
the memory of what I saw that moonlit night stays with me still
for I had stumbled on a peculiar party, hosted by a peg leg dog
and there was a one eyed pole cat doing comedic monologue
A Blueberry Roan soon took the stage, singing Motley Crue
I swear I saw a big ol' ornery hog with a "born to squeal" tattoo
There were bulls & Heifers dancing, I couldn't believe my eyes
why those bovine wore spikes and body piercings, in places utterly unwise
There where horses with mohawk hairdos head banging to the song
I swear to you, Ol' Gus, he began to sway & sing along
Now I know what you're thinking & I most heartily agree
it was the moon & wind playing tricks, along with rotgut whiskey
You city folks can keep your pink elephants parading in tutus
for this cowboy was shown the light by a Roan in blue suede shoes
I gave up hell raising & carousing, said so long to the honky-tonk life
Happy now to stick to ranching & dancing under the moon with my wife
But every now & again, when the wind blows & the moon is shining bright
I swear I can hear the livestock laughing & head banging through the night

To The Moon And Back, Part 2

I love you to the moon and back
our sky no longer is so black
I am your rocket man
footprints I leave in your white sand
trace the steps of loves dance
holding my breath I steal my chance
our words hush as our lips collide
moon-bound again what a ride

Once upon a time in the Magikal' Forest of Ode’
 Buried deep in the mystikal forests of greene’
 Many majikal creatures are seen
 Glittering flashes that glow in firelite
 Of dancing faeries and elves in the night
 Pixies riding fireflies
 Faeries on butterflys 

Gnomes dashing here and beyonde'
 Playing gayly across the sky blue ponds
 Moon babees’ flying with gossamer wings
 While moon goddess’s and leprechauns merrily sing 

Elves riding giddily on birds and bees
 Dazzling and sparkling throughout the trees
 While us mortals sleep unaware
 They frolic about without a care
They hide in and out amongst the glades
 Where during the day many children have played
 With elfin magic the woodland abounds
 Playing in the forest on faery grounds
 We must get on with this magikal tale!
 So, come along with me now
 We’re going into the Magikal Forest and open the veil
 The Lourde’ and His Ladee’ 

The Lourde’and his Ladee rode mysteriously thru the night
 Her arms entwined around him tight
 The horse they rode was dark, glistening black
 He majestikally carried them both on his back 

The Lourde’ and his Ladee’ traveled swiftly thru the night
 Her arms entwined around him tight
 They rode with the wind and the shadows of dark
 For they both held secrets deep in their hearts
 Mystikal spells from the Earth and the Sea
 Said the Lourde of the night to his Elfin Ladee
 “ Spells”, she whispered, from the Mystik and Olde’
 Use them well he said, “ Be brave, be bold ”!
With cobweb silk and dust from the stars
 They made magikal promises from lands afar
 “ Have no fear,” said the Lourde’ to his Elfin Ladee’
 As they road thru the night so dark and shady
 “ No longer me sweete’ shall ye be alone
 Magikal’ love together we’ve sown"
With thunderous hooves they rode into the night
 The moonbeams golden the stars glittering brite’
 The ritual magik' of sorcerers and elves
 Softe' green moss and bewitching spells
 They rode hard and fast into the night
 Guided safely by the stars and softe' moonlite’
 His hair black as midnight hers golden like the sun
 Their spirits and souls were joined together as one
 “ We shall soon be there,” said the Ladee’ to her Lourde’
 “ We’ll find moonbeam faeries' and elves with swords" 

They brought bewitching spells and Enchanted Scrolls
 They carried them tightly in mystikal' rolls
 The Lourde' and his Ladee’ held the magik' Key
 This Lourde’ and his Ladee’ of mystery
 They carried magikal' stones and Celtic spells
 They were very wize they would use them well
Ye' muste' come back, as this faerie' tale will be continued.....

Ode to the Moon

In the night sky there she smiles
Watching lovers from distant miles
After Mr, Sun neglects the world
The gracious moon starts to unfold
Joyful hearts wait the chance
To see the moon spread romance
She’s radiant, sensual, glowing bright,
A witness to bodies fused at night
To lonely hearts, warmth she gives
To broken souls, light she leaves
Could this sparkling jewel in the sky
Be afraid to fall that high?
Oh lovely maiden up above
Does she weep she cannot love?

An Ode to the Moon

An Ode to the Moon

By Elton Camp

Oh lovely moon so shiny and bright
Many lovers you will inspire tonight

They gaze at you, get filled with desire
When two hearts so wildly are set afire

Though the object that they look upon
Is lifeless, dusty and as dry as a bone

But thoughts of this there is no trace
As they admire your pock-marked face

See that crater lying right over there
It’s rugged and totally devoid of air

Though lovers admire what they see
A place of death the moon would be

Very fitting symbol of human love
Is this object that hangs far above

It has a dark side that they didn’t see
After marriage, the lovers will agree

The Moon Beam riders had traveled to Earth
 To bless each childe' at it’s moment of birth
 The Lourde’and his Ladee’ rode swiftly down the road
 To join leprechauns and pixies in the Forest of Ode’
 They must quickly make haste before the night turned around
 Fire faeries' and star babees' danced merrily on the ground
 Dream Weavers and Sandmen scurried joyfully thru the woods
 Carrying brite coulored' baskets filled with magikal' goods 

A woodland wedding for the bride and the groom
 In the Garden of Ode’ under the stars and the moon
 Faerie bride Aveena with her hair spun of gold
 Avid the groom so brave... so bold
 Aveena's gown was shimmering, starbrite white
 As Avid the brave one stood beside her in the night 

They all joined together singing jubiliant songs of great glee
 Then the Lourde’ and his Ladee’ rode in with the magik' key
 Magik' and musik' echoed thru the night air
 As the Lourde’and his Ladee’ joined the tiny pair
 The Magikal' Garden rang oute’ in joyous song
 As Aveena and Avid said their vows to belong 

Elves, gnomes, wizards, moon babees and pixies
 Water and Earth spirits and a faerie' named Trixie
 All dancing in the garden where the all wizards dwelled
 Made of magikal' faerie' duste', softe' green moss and bluebells
Slowly the twilite started slipping away
 As they all sang and danced in joyful play
 Then all of a sudden... quite out of the blue
 In a blink of thee eye- away they all flew
 In the realms of twilight shimmering across the night sky
 There was a fluttering of wings as they all began to fly, fly, fly
 Their silvery wings glistened like stars in the night
 As they majestikally' ascended into mystikal' flight
 After all the fairies' and elves went to their homes of yonder
 Aveena and Avid began their magikal' married life together
 They lived in their Enchanted Cottage in the magikal Forest Of Ode'...
 ' Happily ever after and after and after '
 The Happy End
 P.S. Please remember to come back for our final ending...it's just full of magikal' instructions

77 words for Gift

When the world will set off yet again
  To live life on the same planet
  In the equivalent field of magnet
Running the same race all over again

To part where I'd say"give me your bag". 
         Bonding of brotherhood
         The nous of livelihood
Like birds in the sky _ like confidence in our bag

let the weather weather us _ apparently
         Standing tall for both
         Watching out for both
Where the moon is silent _ apparently

The Constellational Divide

The Constellational Divide

As always the sun would rise and
fade away…
dissipating by the ascension of 
the lunar glow.
But once, when the sun was rather 
curious to see the moon
profess her silver glimmers,
he glimpsed at the Moon in all 
her glory.
So eloquently she would spend her words
murmuring to the North Star.. 
while she would tell her,
of her findings..
“In the North I gaze at the Aurora Borealis paint
the skies with cerulean lavender’s and breathtaking greens.”
So special she thought. 
For everyone fawned over the Aurora Borealis,
But the sun.. his affections flourished 
under the temptation of the moon 
glinting in his iridescence, so beautifully.
“Your luminescence draws me near.. oh beautiful 
Luna.” he said charmingly.
She blushed in three tints of snow white.
Matching that of an arctic hare’s tuft, downy coat.
And their they grew as friends and then eventually
wished to be lovers. 
But no matter how far they inched forward.. they 
could not meet palms nor affections, 
But one day the Sun and the Moon 
were shifted to an approachable distance..
with all their might they met each other 
to the brush of a shoulder,
Where then they collided and
made an beautiful, 
Ethereal eclipse.

Ode to the sky as it sets

The sky thralls me- my eyes
e'er drawn to her center
where she emits her soul
a single star. 

her skirt of scalloped clouds,
rose hued,
darkens with her mood. She is royal,
royal blue. She is enshrouded
by inumerous precious stones,
sapphires and diamonds 
she wears in her rolling tresses.
Sometimes she is lit
by fire.
Her skirt is 
incandescent, lit by the 
relentless flame.

The moon is the eye 
of a certain storm.
The eye of the soul.
It is rimmed in the sun's
smouldering embers.

the sky enticed me,
sending the sun to rest with such
a flourish, 
a swish of the hip, sending
the glowing folds of her skirt
in a frenzy.
And it was all for me
to draw my eyes
to her, so that I may be tempted
to keep my eyes upon her. 
The moon was stark on the dark stage,
soft and full
perfect, cratered and undulating. 
I plucked her out of the sky
and replaced her with 
my own golden iris.

The First Full Moon

The poet's heart is often put to the test.
He or she knows what they like,
but seldom what is best.
We wear our hearts on our sleeve.
Because in the end everything we love must leave.
The road in front of us once seemed 
wide and without an end.
Now it seems too narrow and has 
danger at every bend.
So if you don't see me come this next May.
Just look at the first full moon
and start to pray.
