Poetry inspired from the Moon series

  • by

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 ?
