The Night Of Lunar Eclipse


Walking miles and miles
when I reached there
on a luminous night
thirsty eyes below
and a full moon above
and someone whispering
Your journey ends here
made it all happen
in a blink of time.

She spoke to me, Luna
I spoke to her
and we spoke to each other
through our open eyes
until the shadow walked
slowly veiling her face.

A dark line also walked
gradually engulfing my world.
Don't do that
Don't do that
I screamed and yelled
but she did not hear.

I wept so much
that my eyes were blurred
or perhaps
I became fully blind.

The last thing I saw
was a sad smile
of her corona, a proof
she still existed.

She is no more
She is no more
I cried, I cried

but none was there
to tell me it was
a night of lunar eclipse
as I turned to lunatic
by that one moonlit night.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
