A Chance Rendezvous - Poem by indira babbellapati

On a day when the sun's chariot
Is picking its momentum and
The night still exhaling cool
Dampness on the day's pricking skin
Sitting under an open sky I slip
Into an indescribable stupor
The melody of your thoughts
Transport me into...
'Inda! ' I hear a voice as if
I were sitting in a deep well
'Lift your head and take a look, '
My son's voice I hear from
Two floors down with his eyes skyward
I reluctantly raise my lashes
More to obey my young master
There my eyes catch a mild
Reddish shine on the easterly sky
With well defined angles:
Mars, the unrelenting war god
Stood majestic on a lonely field
Staring at nothing in particular
In dignity, valour and splendour

    Your 'rendezvous' is tantalizingly imaginative in its rich imagery. An ambiance of the night sky. Well written. Good read.
    Thanx for sharing.
