The Moonlit Darkness - Poem by Maida Iftikhar Chikan

Under the twinkling lamp of my lawn,
I closed my eyes and the star did fall

An eye blink uncannily haunted me,
The shooting star my vision didn't meet

Kissed my palms and I would ask, I would beg,
Wrong it was, I bowed my head, I bowed my pride

Hummed my soul beneath wandering stars,
Unheard remained my music so out of note

A pearl from above kissed my cheek,
The raindrop gaily noised my timid soul

I trod my shadow beneath as I stumbled,
Left behind my footsteps on my somber pathway


Sat the perpetual blankiness in my gloomy lap,
I am wet Maa, the raindrop drenched my gracious soul
