The raw Moon was Eclipsed

Reading Time: 1 minute

An evocative poem about nature and philosophical realities of by Ashoka.

Cradled in the ebony curls of the monsoon sky
it returned today
, lovely and laughing!

Over the of the sea
and its waves softly crying to themselves
there hangs a tomorrow
suspended like the wish
between a waiting and a memory!

Rummaging through the marble stars
that seemed so dead
night’s fingers got singed

It is a realisation 
of the ruthless inevitability of death
when one is already .
