Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Mystic Moonlight!

Moon, Sea, Full Moon, Light Reflections, Moonlight

The torrents of emotions

created a tempest within me.

I escaped home, to the sea

my refuge.

The darkness of the impenetrable sky,

roar of the undulating waves,

mirrored my perturbed mind.

With not a soul around,

just me,

I let the floodgates of the

incessant tears flow,

merging into the salty waters.

The scintillating Β pregnant moon

appeared from behind the broody clouds,

she looked down at me with a loving smile.

Captivated by her warmth

I felt my tears dry.

Her benign radiance comforted

my emotional ripples.

The dazzle of luminous stars illuminated my heart,

serenading it, to complement the gleaming waters.

I sat there mesmerized

beneath the surface of the night,

feeling my pain being washed away

until,

the promise of a new dawn embraced me.

    Superb and fantastic poem, Radhika and in the end it is the moon that gave you its radiance and allowed your tears to stop and be happy with the surroundings. Too good.
