Blood Moon - Poem by gajanan mishra

Blood moon,
Blood in the moon
And moon in the blood
And also blood moon
Are not one and the same.

See the moon and say
O my dear, is it a sign
Of fatal events
Are we on this earth
Going towards change.

Who is competent to explain
Please come forward
At this dead night and
Say a few words about you
Before going to the moon.

Why to fear my dear,
We should not get worry
About moon, whether it is
Dark or light, red or yellow
We should go with us as we are.

Come to the nature and
Supply me with a bucket of
Drinking water in this tide-time
Come on with some food
To enable me to fill up my belly and live.

    There are superstitions galore about heavenly bodies. The poet has done well to discredit all such theories that have been part of our folklore or mythology. Thanks. I quote:

    Red moon'- - - -Who is competent to explain
    Please come forward
    And this dead night and
    say a few words about you
    Before going to the moon'- -

    Blood moon, blood in the moon and moon in the blood are not the same.'They are understood differently.Scientists, philosophers, writer or poets who discuss red moon should come forward and explain whether this change is good for common man who is currently worried with getting pure drinking water or dying with food scarcity?
    Thanks for sharing a marvelous poem and congratulations for being poet of the day. (Report) Reply
