Cold Moon Shining

As night falls and the sky darkens

a cold moon climbs upwards

bathing the world

witb a chilly incandescent

Silver light.

I lie upon my empty bed

with memories of what we shared

once , long ago

before the cold moon shining raised its head.


I wonder if the dawn of day

will bring a change of heart

a change of thought

And dispel the winter chill that grips my soul

with cold moon shining in the dark.

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


    1. Thanks for your words of appreciation. I too normally associate the moon with happy feelings especially this full moon which we consider “kojagiri” the night when the moon is closest to the earth and the Goddess Laxmi comes around asking who is awake . We stay up late and welcome her with almond milk and the house ablaze with lights . But this time far away in the US, I found it cold and chilling. Strange isn’t it ?
