Environment Inspiration Nightscapes Romancing the Moon

बस यूँही……

The never ending fascination of the moon cannot be explained in mere words by Selenophiles like me. Every phase of its ever changing beauteous countenance shows different nuances that are equally fascinating and captivating. Gazing at the face of the moon ( & the tiny Venus close to it) in the wintry breeze last night sent a shiver down the spine : a combination of excitement, pleasure and the effect of the wind chill.
Little wonder so many poets have written so much on the heavenly beauty.
Here is one by Shelley.
To the Moon

Art thou pale for weariness
Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,
Wandering companionless
Among the stars that have a different birth, —
And ever changing, like a joyless eye
That finds no object worth its constancy?

यूँ ना निकलो बेनकाब छत पे,चांद भी शर्मा जाएगा,
थोड़ा पर्दा कर लो दिन में भी,आफताब भी जल जाएगा,
हमारा क्या, तेरी पुरकशीश सूरत देख जमाना भी मर जाएगा….

(पुरकशीश – Attractive)
