Blessed Be Lovely Fellas!
I am overwhelmed by the response you all have given on my last post...it was just a "Thank you" but you all made me smile, grin, laugh and feel like I am on top of the world! You all deserved every bit of it and you needn't say thank you for that. But, I am not complaining. I love it! :D :D Muchas Gracias to you all, Senors and Senoritas!
|Starry Kiss for you all! :*|
So, my next post is on Tarot Cards. It is taking me time to finish the research and shorten the details...but believe me, it is magical. It takes me to a different world. It's mostly going to take two parts because there are 22 Cards in Major Arcana and other smaller denomination cards in Minor Arcana.
Besides all of that, the point of this post is, how we miss the Magic all around us. Last night, it was one such realization. You know that Winters are round the corner and Nights are becoming a little bit colder...both of which I love. Winters and Night. I was writing down my thoughts in my diary when my eyes went to the Half risen moon. I sit before a window with my laptop and beyond the window, there is a balcony and you can see miles ahead. I stay near highway, so the houses are there, but far away. So, yes, Half Risen Moon. It's waning now, since Full moon was a couple of days back. And believe me, my heart stopped. The Moon was yellow orange-ish...still rising and there were stars! I mean, it's a surprise to see stars these days, when our skies have turned brown and orange due to pollution.

Now, we really don't care about what time the Moon raises or how much time it takes to wane and all that (except for may be our mothers, who would need to know when in Purnima or Amavasya). I had started to keep a track, but then I forgot and got too busy (That is the excuse I give even for things I love). So, the Stars...I recognized Orion...and few common ones like Dipper but then it was too cold...and late in the night. I couldn't stand there. I stared at the moon for 10 whole minutes...when I decided I will write something. For we all should take time out, at least ten minutes to appreciate these finer things Nature bestows upon us.When I tell my roomies about how beautiful the moon looks, usually, they smirk 'cause, apparently it's funny that I become dreamy when I stare at the moon. May be it is, may be it is not. Magic is visible only to those who seek it without any inhibitions.
In Bangalore, weather is always good, so I go to the terrace at night and stay there for 2 hours at a stretch. It's so easing, that I miss it here, in Bhopal. Tonight, I might though, watch the moon again. But it will rise late today. I think it's two hours later than it was yesterday. I am not sure. But, if you have reached till here...anyway, bearing my ramblings, you might as well read this tiny poem which I wrote for the Night... :D :D
The Night covers the forbidden secrets...
Of Desires and Dangers,
I am the storm, the harbinger...
Of the Bold and the Beautiful,
The One so Invincible.
I wait for the Lady of the Night,
the One I worship, the One who guides Me,
To the path where You and I meet,
And the Moon shines down upon us,
As I touch your face, the Stars pour down...
Tonight, I see, the magic all around,
When I hold you in my arms...
Clouds embrace us as I watch you,
Our love has casted its charm ...
Into the Night, we move...
For you, my Love, I break the barriers and dive,
Into the Darkest Crevices...
Your hand in mine, our magic then flourishes....
