Far Side Of The Moon - Poem by kanav justa

the ocean's water
rose higher
the invisible hands of the moon
drew it with a force mysterious

the earth beneath
constantly comforted by the calm ocean
yet sweltering inside
of the memories old
though the sea pacified the surface
whose water
secretly was being taken
by the distant moon


Traveling back in time
when earth was newborn
spinning around the sun
not by will but command
of the dark forces
Luring the earth to be its part
the earth wanted to break free
the enraged sun
fed earth with meteor
not one but in thousands
still not appeased by the destruction
sent a planet
as big as mars
to annihilate earth
the two worlds collided
the earth somehow endured
the other one though destroyed
but not completely

a part of that planet
is now seen frolicking around the earth
the one called moon, our ally
caressing earth with his light
sent by the forces unknown
to keep an eye on the earth
endlessly

    Remember spring tide and neap tide
    Raise and fall of one side and the other side
    Like our desires which have rise and fall
    seeing and wondering nature forces
