Moon - Poem by Bharati Nayak
When did we meet first?
Was it at my birth?
Or was it
When I was planted in mother's womb
In a night lit by you
And saw you through my mother's eyes,
Who dreamt a child like you
Lovely, beautiful and tender?
But our relationship is for ages
Since you circled the Mother earth
Born out of a chunk
From earth's womb!
My mother introduced you as 'Jahna Mamu'
The Moon uncle
And I always desired to go near you
And when this earth's scientists went to you
In flesh and blood
You remained no more a distant mystery
In their camera they captured images
That are rough, sandy, rocky
Even there are no greeneries
Like our earth
Nor are there any birds or flowers
But I wonder
In spite of no life
How you look beautiful
From this distance!
