the moss of beginnings

at the edge of some 
            beginning lies the humanoid lacking requi-
            site evolutionary cogs
            & bits to fully process daytime
            (it’s blinding but so is karma)
            it blushes & 
                 retires -

where water goes to quench its thirst, there
            it is that the
            bumblebees bumble, where herons and 
            heroines speak sky & 
            the courage of humans falters, mixes with
            the rust of 
            trees, the moss of beginnings & the roots
            of poems past & 
                    here -

it would have been a new poem
            had it not been for the oldness
            of knives, the oddity of
            pale, the sunken brevity of the
            odd word, the fondness of 
            being strange &
                      still -

    So profound 😮

    • Dear Munira,
      I agree with you. The poem is as profound as it is evocative! Thank you.

      Dear huzaifazoom,
      You have indeed composed another commendable poem. Well done!

      I notice that this post was published on the 27th of April. Did you have a chance to observe and photograph the April super pink moon, which is the very first super moon of 2021 on the 26th or 27th? What a night it was to look upon the full moon shining upon the landscape in all its grandeur, and to reflect deeply in the moment!

      Being a poet and a lover of moon myself, I would like to entertain, inspire and resonate with you through my most animation-intensive post presented to you as a courtesy of my dramatic attempt to bring the Full Moon alive, so to speak, in the form of Music Animation with Dynamic Visualization presented in high definition and imbued with a scintillating full moon surrounded by eye-catching astronomical phenomena and stellar activities!

      The post also contains ten poetic stanzas constituting my rhyming poem entitled “If My Name Were Moon Tonight…“. I am still working on the eleventh stanza and its animation.

      This post has not only been extended but has also been improved from top to bottom. It is now covered in animations throughout.

      In order to see all of the animations, please make sure that you view the post on my blog and not via the WordPress Reader. Please enjoy to your heart’s content the mixed-media offering of “If My Name Were Moon Tonight…” and its beautifully rendered Music Animation with Dynamic Visualization on the big high-resolution screen of your desktop or laptop computer. Switch the video playback to full-screen mode. The animation starts calmly and will gradually climax.

      There is also the opportunity to savour my own rendition of “Clair de Lune” recorded on the organ.

      I am very curious about what you think and look forward to receiving your feedback there.

      May you and Munira find the rest of 2021 very much to your liking and highly conducive to your writing, reading, thinking and composing whatever posts that take your intellectual fancy or show off your imaginative flight, with or without the power and allure of the Moon!

      Yours sincerely,
