Nights of the No-Moon ..

No-moon nights …

Tinder sparks of light;
sharp stars
in the perfumed night ..

Arc of the cosmos;
bruised blue
by the lunar loss ..

moonless with fears ;
no silent rain ; only
held-back tears..

Heaven’s hand-mirror
averts her face
from the chimaera ..

No-moon nights;
darkness and pain;
a world without sight ..

Amber and cedarwood
Attar of roses
Incense and oudh ..

O sliver of moon beyond
Wreaths of white smoke;
O silvery hope; return soon …

About atomsofstars

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
