A Budding Bloom… Poem by Kesav Venkat Easwaran

A Budding Bloom…

Rating: 5.0

Dear me! You wax and wane
Akin to moon
Display a crescent to full
Differ lovingly day by day...
A no-moon day too gives
The longing to watch
A nascent frill on the sky,
Next day

That's a good baby song...a little baby or your beloved one...Listen to Elvis Presley's 'Moody Blues'...regarding the missus. As for the little baby, you can croon your lovely poem as a lullaby.. Cheers. Subroto

The moon represents the depth of our subconscious and shows how we express our emotions and nurturing skills, and it is the feminine side of our nature. And she can be quite fickle as your poem creatively shows. Interesting work.... Karin Anderson

"You wax and wane Akin to moon"…I really like the longing on the no-moon day element of your poem! 5*****

I feel, here the comparison is to a woman who has fluctuating moods like the moon! On some days, she waxes in energy and cheer. On some other days she loses half of her lustre. Whether she waxes or wanes, the very thought of her is thrilling! Another beautiful poem!
