My First Lover





I grew up
Listening 
To your
Lullaby

O Moon!
You were my first lover

As a sprightly young girl
 In total awe 
Of your magnificence
Exhilarated 
By your silver sheath
I serenaded you
With a love poem

O Moon!
You were my first lover

Like the precious
Chakor
Drenched in your love
I loved you deeply
Going in a frenzy 
On full moon nights

O Moon!
You were my first lover!

Your mighty 
savoir faire
of tidal swings
Made me wonder at your silent
Prowess

O Moon!
You were my first lover

People say 
You only reflect
The light of the sun
But only I Know
Your light
Is so much fun

O Moon!
You were my first lover!

Your eclipses
Are often berated
But i proclaim 
To all
Perfection is
often over rated

O Moon!
You were my first lover!

Your waxing and waning
Swinging
From crescent to a Full moon ball of silver
Dance  in tandem
With my subtle moods

O Moon!
You were my first lover!

Listening 
To the songs
Sung in your praise
I spent 
The entire night
Under your 
Silver meshes

Tip toeing 
In the middle of the night
I sat by your light
Penning couplets
To my secret lover

As i pined
For my secret lover
I sat perplexed
Sharing my grief
With your patient heart

O Moon!
You were my first lover!

When i finally united
With my ardent lover
I celebrated my joy
Under the full moon night
As you appeared as a silver ball
By the midnight beach
Echoing the songs of your heart

Drunk 
With the joy of
Togetherness
Your benevolent gaze
A witness to our exultation
My lover and I
Tap danced the entire night

O Moon! 
You were my first lover!

Shining serenely
In your incandescent halo
In the umbrella of the 
Star studded night
You have inspired
 Generation of lovers
Since time immemorial

O Moon!
You were my first lover!

On a Blue moon night
My lover and I
Engaged in raptures
Entwined in passion
Wearing garlands
Of night jasmine
Intoxicated by your cool light
 Exchanged vows
Of Eternity
Clutching hands
Swaying in the night river
Emblazoned with your sweetness

O Moon!
You were my first lover!

As a new bride
I worshiped you
For the longevity of my lover

O Moon!
You were my first lover!

You
Maybe
An airless 
Cratered filled heavenly entity
Of the Solar system
But to me
You will always be my lover

O Moon!
You were my first lover!
