! ! Alone A Waft Of Soft Delight - Poem by Raveendran N.V.

About a sharp and lonely moon
Among the sea of stars and clouds
A smileless sigh, a doleful look
Alone, alack! a wail anon.

A swing, a sweep, across the deep
A sky above. a sky below
A rook. a roost. aside beside
A long tunnel behind beneath.

At once around the moon a smile
As lit anew among the gloom
As it was light to life benign
Alone a waft of soft delight.

    Night music. Deep, blue, pensive and memorable. Song of the solitary soul. Lovely, Raveendran.

    Warmest regards,

    Sandra
