Far Side Of The Moon


the ocean's water
rose higher
the invisible hands of the moon
drew it with a force mysterious

the earth beneath
constantly comforted by the calm ocean
yet sweltering inside
of the memories old
though the sea pacified the surface
whose water
secretly was being taken
by the distant moon


Traveling back in time
when earth was newborn
spinning around the sun
not by will but command
of the dark forces
Luring the earth to be its part
the earth wanted to break free
the enraged sun
fed earth with meteor
not one but in thousands
still not appeased by the destruction
sent a planet
as big as mars
to annihilate earth
the two worlds collided
the earth somehow endured
the other one though destroyed
but not completely

a part of that planet
is now seen frolicking around the earth
the one called moon, our ally
caressing earth with his light
sent by the forces unknown
to keep an eye on the earth
endlessly

    Far Side Of The Moon
    ....when I read the title
    I feel as if I am going to
    take a voyage to the moon
    with you...this is one of my
    favourite poems of yours :)
    the ocean's water
    rose higher
    the invisible hands of the moon
    drew it with a force mysterious
    ....I have read the gravitational force
    of the moon is the cause of the
    earth's ocean tides and twice a
    month when the earth sun and moon
    line up the force is the greatest
    since the sun also pulls the tides..
    I wonder if the moon actually
    affects humans as it affects the earth
    I actually think it does :)
    the earth beneath
    constantly comforted by the calm ocean
    yet sweltering inside
    of the memories old
    though the sea pacified the surface
    whose water
    secretly was being taken
    by the distant moon
    ...our water is special and
    a necessity..
    I hope the moon doesn't
    take it all...it is our most
    valuable resource :)
    Traveling back in time
    when earth was newborn
    spinning around the sun
    not by will but command
    of the dark forces
    Luring the earth to be its part
    the earth wanted to break free
    the enraged sun
    fed earth with meteor
    not one but in thousands
    still not appeased by the destruction
    sent a planet
    as big as mars
    to annihilate earth
    the two worlds collided
    the earth somehow endured
    the other one though destroyed
    but not completely
    ....the kymatica documentary
    also has this scenario...I am sure
    this could be true in the early stages
    of creation....this was news to me :)
    a part of that planet
    is now seen frolicking around the earth
    the one called moon, our ally
    caressing earth with his light
    sent by the forces unknown
    to keep an eye on the earth
    endlessly
    ....so true and you penned
    this stanza so beautifully :)

    An excellently narrated poem about Creation and the mystery that it is and the powerful role which the moon plays. Lovely work, Kanav! Thank you for sharing... (Report) Reply

    Remember spring tide and neap tide
    Raise and fall of one side and the other side
    Like our desires which have rise and fall
    seeing and wondering nature forces (Report) Reply

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
