Evening ...

When the noon stretches and yawns in dreamy languor
and gets ready to depart in a siesta like gait,
flecks of sunrays dance on the tree top
like jingling sequins on moss green leaves,
Evening comes
 like a new bride, with bashful footfalls,
collecting the remnants of the last lingering noon,
 ready to reconcile  into the velvet arms of a full moon night.

On that evening
you may hear the moist voice of moonlight
beckoning you;
since so many centuries
the voice of moonlight has been waiting for you.

This is beautiful Baishali! :) Reminds me of the great nature-loving poems I read in school...and when you talk about the moon being centuries old...it reminds me of all the star gazing I've done on peaceful windy nights....lovely imagery :)

I love these lines, "When the noon stretches and yawns in dreamy languor
and gets ready to depart in a siesta like gait,flecks of sunrays dance on the tree top" so beautiful~ So glad you joined in! Amazing~
