The Dark moon At Dawn


The black cuckoo

hidden among dense leaves-

seldom to be seen-

brings in its throat,


in Spring dawn-

to make

a festival of lights

in the dark corners

of my core.

  1. Imagery of the black cuckoo is marvellous – such a happy time that bringer of light – though I wonder how it must feel to celebrate with one piece of you always missing

  2. Oh yes, a beautiful and timely piece. The black cuckoo announcing the significant event, Festival of Lights, is most impressive.
    Happy Diwali, Sumana!

Thank You :)
