Have You Ever Gazed The Moon? - Poem by Jaya Das

Have you ever gazed the moon?
May be; not really,
You can only see a magnificent disc
which cannot behold it's ecstasy
ends up spreading it's glare
illuminating the night sky.

Alas! Your eyes cannot cross the abyss
Those innumerable pits,
deep dug cavities on it's surface
were always out of your reach
All you can adore is it's exoteric smile
It always reflects back whenever you look at it.

Have you ever gazed the moon?
May be; not really,
In cloudless night, it is found
surrounded by countless glimmering stars
as if million fireflies have lost their way.

Alas! You are oblivious how distant they are from the moon
Yet they seem so close
Feigned by its ethereal glory.

Have you ever gazed the moon as intently as I?
When you look up, the white sphere admist
twinkling stars renders a glowing sight
But when I see, the moon seems as lonely as me
sharing my heart's doom
Which rises every night
and sets the next day with the rising sun's boon.

Have you ever gazed that moon?
