Selene- The Ballad of the Moon

Selene – The Ballad of the Moon (Written in 2011)

What words shall describe her?
With what relic shall I compare?
Being her lone admirer,
I lay there in despair.


Fairer than the fairest maiden
Brighter than the stars divine,
Too beautiful with scabs laden,
Too ethereal for me to malign.


Seated in the kingdom above, my fair femme,
Her dark hair spreading across the realm;
Several were they, little white gem,
That twinkled everywhere in her dark wide helm.


Each passing day, she changed her form,
And one fine day she will be gone.
Not to fear, she will re-form,
Like the very first moment she was drawn.


Thus she tells me, a mere mortal being,
That even she, the sacred illuminator,
From the living world, will be disappearing,
By the order of the Holy Illustrator.


But she will re-spawn,
To continue to spread light,
Compensating for the time she had been gone,
To clear primitive beings of their fright.


And therefore, us, humans must learn,
That despite our failures,
We must be stern,
And trust in the Saviour.


Our time, to shine, will be given,
Making us forget, the pains of our struggle;
Our wrong doings, forgiven,
And our hardships, being shown, frugal.


We must come back as bright as the new moon,
Accepting the gifts of the Supreme Lord,
Overcoming life's typhoon,
And live at his accord.


She shines peacefully,
Serving as our example;
To help us live our lives blissfully,
Everyday teaching us ample.


She illuminates lesser beings,
While she herself gets illuminated by the sun.
We humans are to follow her and give our fellow beings,
What we are given by The Son.


So many things you teach,
But how many of your teachings reach?
Though you are visible, you continue to remain unseen,
My sweet, deal Old' Selene.

Author's note

Hello, I'm A.Prashanth Narasimhan, an aspiring novelist, screenwriter, animator, stargazer, in short a dreamer and a story teller. I'm also one of those guys who has an opinion for practically everything, whether I know a subject or not. But mostly I do try to learn about the subject that I'm trying to speak about. But who shall give me the platform to express my opinion? So I decided to create my own platform. This blog will be the place where I will exhibit extracts of my novels, short stories, essays and poetry. I shall also give out my thoughts on a variety of subjects here, including Literature, Science, Movies, Politics, Video Games, Religion, etc. Hope the readers of this blog find it entertaining, educating and thought provoking. The one thing that I would like to request to the visitors, is that everything written here are solely my own opinions, thoughts and ideas and so please do not copy contents from here (whether you find it interesting or boring). Good or bad, what is mine, is mine..."Thievery of thoughts is the greatest of sins". I would also try to give credit to the rightful owners of particular ideas and concepts, if I indeed use them to explain something, by quoting their names. So enjoy reading and feel free to express your own opinions on anything through the comment section...
