Azure

'What is up there in azure mother? '
She looked out the window and then further.
And said- 'there are birds flying above ,
Probably an eagle chasing a dove.'

Child nodded and asked again,
His mother couldn’t read his brain.
She said- 'there are clouds above
It may rain today my love.'

The child now asked once again,
Alluring thoughts going through his brain.
'Mom, what resides beyond the clouds,
Something that is not visible and loud?'

Mother replied:

'Son, the wild blue yonder is so vast ,
A celestial shadow it does cast .
Some stars shimmer across the poles,
Some turned into black holes.

And there are some
Who themselves burn
But give us warmth
in return.

Some shooting stars
have fallen down
In fires of passion
embraced the ground

Then there is the sycophant
It's sun's name it does chant
Who then grants him a boon-
And behold luminous is the moon.

Some planets live far aloof
not visible from any roof
Calmly breathing in tranquility
far away from our tales of glory.'

Son in pain glumly said
Missing his father long back dead
There is a star in azure sky
From whence he sings a lullaby

I know that's where he lives
when I am asleep, he privily peeps
from the one that glows most at night
and smiles silently at my sight.

  3. A beautiful poem! It captures so well the child's imagination and curiosity at the same time. The sky may be a vast infinity but for a child one star is all that is needed. Very well written!
