On certain

moonlit nights-

I give my words,

my thoughts,

a break-

all go

while I am awash

with dappled darkness-

my soul attuned

to milky night

with an ear

catching the note

of Raga Abhogi*

birthing from the Sitar

inundating me in bliss.



*A raga or ragini is akin to a melodic mode in Indian classical music. Raga Abhogi is a night raga sung or played in early night.
