I saw the moonlight.
It wasn’t scintillating.
Neither did it glow much.
Yet, it’s radiance reached me.
I didn’t feel mesmerized,
Nor did a song come rushing out.
But all the way,
The light reached the earth’s surface.
Even the fishes in the pond,
Still the pond’s surface glittered like a new bright object.
The birds had gone to sleep,
And the dogs, cats, goats and sheep all closed their eyes,
And sleep came.
When everyone opened their eyes it was morning.
The sun was already on its way to the zenith.
But I saw the moonlight.
