Blue Moons by Ananya Guha

Somehow the road wavers

a mist hovers downtown

everything is reclusive

and the sun callow-faced

I walk down the steps

a little uncertain that the day’s

hues will linger

like the man selling his wares

his gaunt face the shape of a sky

or those blue moons

above

below.


Unbecoming is time

as the winter settles down

into warmer evenings

blue moons laugh.


Silently a whisper emerges

out of emerald skies

birds in search of blue moons

tears are inane, not far away.
