Jewel of the Night

By Somali K Chakrabarti Image Source A canoe set sail in the middle of the night The boy saw a jewel hanging from the sky When wind pushed the boat to the beat of waves The jewel slid down and rested at the edge The boy thus tempted, cast his net and hook Little did he know that the moon was a crook Beckoning him with a smile, The moon lit the sea As fast as he could, the boy sailed forth in his reverie “Come up here,” he heard the moon say But the horizon, forever held him at bay For a long time,  moon kept up the play then it dipped into the sea …and quietly slipped away © Somali K Chakrabarti, 2016  If you believe that any picture on the site infringes your copyright, please inform and it will be removed Lei: A wreath for your soul  is a string of short poems reflecting on nature, life, illusion and inspiration.
