Shattered Image - Poem by Valsa George

Moon - a bashful bride
From behind the veil
Peers down into the silvery mirror.
Narcissus like,
She gloats over her own fair face,
That for eons
Peeped in and out, tantalizing
Bards and beaus - alike.
But, Alas! Driven by envy,
As a mischievous brat scrawls over
His sibling's piece of painting,
The wind tickles the Deep
Shattering the luminous image
Into a dozen fragments
Flo ating.....floating all around.

    A beautiful poem on the phases of life, or on the various phases of a woman that start like a crescent, climax of full moon, and then the anticlimax and ultimately a dark night. (Report) Reply

    Personification at its best use makes this poem very dear to read.. The Moon acquires a mysterious shade of relevance and entity of her own here. (Report) Reply
