A Strange Night - Poem by Raj Arumugam

it was a half moon
and the somber sky
yawned, with no other lights;
and a hunchback-cloud came close
and it was a complete picture
of a half-headed ogre
with a sick yellow eye

    LOL, I love the monstrous vision conjured up by the cloud. I have always considered it my curse to see plotting humans and ranging monsters in every pattern I happen to glance at. But maybe it's not such a bad thing after all..(smile) (Report) Reply

    Great imagery...I agree with Roshni, it will be difficult to gaze at teh half moon without recalling your poem... (Report) Reply

    Brilliant image...although, I'm not sure I will be able to look at a half moon in the same way again! (Report) Reply
