Once in a Blue Moon – Dr. Ranjana Sharan Sinha


Every so often,
like a beam of light
you enter through a
narrow hole of my heart–
I try to recognise!

Every so often,
like small boats of clouds
you float in the
sky of my mind–
I’m caught by surprise!

Every so often,
like air in my atmosphere
you rise and sink
creating mist and rain–
I feel the pattern of weather!

Once in a blue moon,
like the restless ocean
cresting and dissipating,
you seem to call me–
I breathe in the poignant salty breath!!
