Rhapsody – Megha Sood

Her voice a little smooth

like the silt and sediment;

resting between my toes

and her black tresses

braided with salt and water

as if flirting with the moon tonight

that shifty-eyed moon:

with it’s borrowed lights

hides the scars

when it soothes her

imbues them with the

milky pristine moonlight

The truth and it’s absence

and the time crimped in its edges

she scampers on the water gently

on a moonlit night

cupping her palms with the fleeting light

folded gently within those faithful waves

she dips her toes

/A truth so sublime/

the moon watches this dance of rhapsody

this unison of passion and beauty,

and folds it gently

neatly tucked in the lap of time.
