You see the moon
Sinking into the deep black sea
A mourning look upon your face
As you reflect on your life.
Life goes on,
Chances go by,
You never raise your head
For some time.
But then as you look up once again,
Looking at the sun on the horizon,
As it rises,
Your eyes become stony hard,
And your mind becomes diamond clear.
You raise your head to its tallest point,
And puff out your chest,
And a smile lingers on your face,
As a new beginning starts,
Its ultimate point.
Expectations vs Reality
Raising the bar, expecting higher than this,
Giving it all to get the desired result,
Yet fate intervenes, and the thread
Gets in the way, pulling you back down to Earth
Coming in like a sun’s ray at dawn,
Bringing forth a new wave of experiences and memories.
Soon, going away as the moon’s darkness at dusk’s arrival,
Bringing forth pain and grief at the loss of one’s existence.
A tender wave crashed onto the moon
A few hymns sprang to the lips
A feeling unknown rose in the spring,
And hovered above the pale aurora haze.
It stirred the emotions deep inside,
And flittered from side to side,
Teasing the wits of the wise,
And bringing smiles to the eyes of all.
Augmenting confusion, everlasting expansion,
Swirling expanse, coalish black,
Gaping its garland of claws, forever alone,
Enemy to all, known to none.
Diamond stars; pearl raindrops
Serene voice. Slumber tranquil.
Luminary rays shine on dew.
Wings flutter. Lone cry
Splatters on the surface.
Sounds far away. Slumber deep in
Dreams as nature blends in.
