…..'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'…..

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

MenoLyrical; Word For Words' Sake


A dropping moon
Caught an artist's eye,
Ling'ring behind clouds
In a dawn-prone sky.

As Luna looked back,
So bright and silent,
Another gaze drank her;
Sighed deeply; then went.

This was a sketch and ditty inspired at Sandeepany by seeing my Sanskrit Tutor taking a private moment.  He was unaware of my presence.

I was reminded of it by TAKE ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY SIX. 


  1. I love that poem. So present, and so fleeting.


  2. Beautiful poem! Such wonderful words
    Loves and licky kisses

  5. I like the poem and I sometimes feel the same when the moon catches our eyes (yes sometimes we watch the moon and the clouds at night, crazy, I know, but after watching the sky we can sleep much better, lol)
