If I Could Hold The Moon Poem by Nosheen Irfan

If I Could Hold The Moon

Rating: 5.0

In the hurry and scurry of life
Soul takes whips, sharp as knife
Heart yearns with an insatiable hunger
For the unreachable, loud as thunder

The day camouflages as the sunshine
For a while it all seems damn fine
The light slowly pales into evening mist
If I could hold the moon in my fist!

Yes indeed the heart does year for the unreachable.

The pragmatic never fully wins out. Even I have had such thoughts

When the light pales, naturally the mind too becomes foggy and the heart yearns for the unreachable....! Instead of surrendering oneself completely to darkness, it is always better to seek for beacons of light in the dark....! The hope of finding them sustains life... As ever, pithy and sweet!

Short and beautiful as always, though I must confess I am not competent enough to fully fathom the subtleties you play with. The second stanza is really outstanding. The rhyming is unobtrusive. (10)

Yes, we yearn to hold the moon's celestial light. A sultry day ends and dusk falls with moon rising on the horizon, very beautiful
