Poetry inspired from the Moon series

Mukta Kamplikar derived inspiration from my new ‘Moon’ series and penned down some beautiful poems on each artwork in her own artistic way. The collaboration was a complete delight as we could express our romantic selves through the medium of my art and her poetry together. Sharing a poem from one of my most favourite painting-

The New age Moon
Don’t you get tired of playing it cool?
Do you have any friends ?
Do you emote at all ..and go all purple with rage ever?
Have you gone to bed with someone in your arms lately?
What is this measured detachment about ?
Do you have no stories at all?
Do you have no past ?
No rain , no wind
No memory to last?
And that high moral tight lipped position you assume
What do you preserve in that vacuum ?
