A Moon And The Stars


When you wink at me,
With your eyes planted on me,
Thousands of blooms grow,
In me, my beautiful face glow,
In the sky every two fortnight,
When the dwellers of the earth,
Need the comfortable warmth,
To speak to their hearts,
They look at me with envy,
Beauty of mine never diminishes,
Nor polluted as the aging earth mother,
Spin of mine makes your hearts to blabber,
Shunning of my seduction in the presence of sun brother,
Don’t look at me, constellation,
You too would be beyond consolation.
