A Budding Bloom… - Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

Dear me! You wax and wane
Akin to moon
Display a crescent to full
Differ lovingly day by day...
A no-moon day too gives
The longing to watch
A nascent frill on sky next day...

    It's like this..........one day so many comments/messages and somedays nothing at all.............but the absence of it makes it more hopeful to watch out for something shortly...............janani (Report) Reply

    This poem is like comparing a woman at an unsure stage of her life to the moon and how she reacts in showing her phases (faces) .........smile, beautifully written. Thanks, mandara (Report) Reply

    The moon represents the depth of our subconscious and shows how we express our emotions and nurturing skills, and it is the feminine side of our nature. And she can be quite fickle as your poem creatively shows. Interesting work.... Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    That's a good baby song...a little baby or your beloved one...Listen to Elvis Presley's 'Moody Blues'...regarding the missus.
    As for the little baby, you can croon your lovely poem as a lullaby..

    Cheers.
