Oh Moon Why Are You Sad? - Poem by mamutty CHOLA
OH MOON WHY ARE YOU SAD?
Today whenI set out for my evening walk
In full moon night. I looked at Moon
She was in her pristinebeauty, charm
And glory spreading hermoonshine across
the face of earth.Bringingjoy andbliss
in the lives ofthe creatures on earth.
I haveoften seen image of my lost love
onMoon in fullmoon.I asked Moon whether
she had seen my lost love any where.Before
Moon could reply, she was engulfedby moving
dark clouds for a few seconds.When she emerged
from theshadowthe clouds, she said no
she had not seen my love anywhere.
I asked her why she hada dark patches on herface.
She replied sinceages she had been receiving
Shocks aftershocks onseeing the sufferings
Of thecreatures on earth. Her aim had been
to spreadhappiness all round. She was gratefulto all
creatures of earth for their admirationand
adoration for her beauty and charms.But for
we all, her beauty would haveremain unsung
Said the moon.
Moon was very sad for falcon.She said no one had
loved her theway falcon did. He had been flyingto
reach herin full mainsince ages but alas, all attempts
in vain..No one knew better than her the pangs of
separation.Her loveforfalcon and all otherson
earth would remain immortal since her soulresides
within us; the creatureson mother earth! ! !
