Facie Luna
 
The moon–
Pretty darn fair
smiles archly and
teases her beau–
The night sky:
Blue-black and dark–
Like gaurangi Radha
teasing shyam- verna Krishna!
 
The ribbing and
the enticing smile–
Spring flowers in
the nerves of night !
Her heartbeat he feels
and hears the soft breaths;
the shiny silvery dots
burn with bright flame!
 
A volcanic kiss
amid an amaranthine
flow of liquid love, transforming
the moon’s appearance!
The atramentous sky
stamps his colour
on her white cheeks–
From duality to oneness!
