She Communes With Stars - Poem by Akshaya Pawasker

She communes with stars,
they have got a tongue.
She stops me in mid stance,
to show me how it’s done.

In a hypnotic trance,
she foretells my death.
She says she never errs,
not far is my last breath.

To revoke this malediction,
to break the jinx of doom,
to deliver me from darkness,
she wants to be my moon.

From the book of enchantments,
a spell that she can share,
if only I had a moment and
a few pounds to spare.

How I wish she knew,
to converse with my mind,
to know without my saying
I have not got a penny,
to waste on her kind.

And if death be near,
I will only be glad,
as I have been courting it,
like a lover mad.

    like a lover mad.

    Wonderful lines ma'am! The fortune teller gimmick is exposed and at the same time a deep melancholy is also expressed. I liked it a lot! (Report) Reply

    So many tricks to dupe clients! Fortune tellers with tarot packs, people who claim that they can plumb into the secrets of life by communing with celestial bodies or souls in the nether world... all to eke out a living or make easy money! If we are firm in our resolve not to fall into the trap of these leeches, we needn't later regret our loss of money! ! One more beautiful write Akshaya! ! (Report) Reply

    Much can be said on both the sides. Conversing with the stars is good indeed. But aspiring to say 'good bye' to a life which has made you is wishful thinking and ought to be dispensed with.
    The format and diction are again marvellous! (Report) Reply
