kartik purnima

she wore a drape of darkness
a black dress and hidden tresses
but that was two weeks ago
since then she has put on a show

but nothing like tonight
not to match this sight
tonight she wore a gown of white
adorned with many gems of light

in her glowing gown
she danced with the clouds
brightest lady in town
amidst celestial crowds

we could have danced all night
if only i could reach her height
alas i stayed here on the ground
my spirit danced to celestial sounds

in her light
and that of clouds like veils
her rhythm in my heart
and in my feet
i traced the paths
of starlight trails
and wrote ancient mantras
in the street

tonight she wore a gown of white
adorned with many gems of light
she danced all night with the clouds
my moonlight lady amidst celestial crowds
