    1. Thank you Alok ! We were unable to see the bluneess though we did spied the moon :) it seems (theoritically) that dust particles above the size of 0.7 microns help in giving the blue colour to it and Indian skies are dust free , you know :p :p

    2. hahaha! @Kokila Gupta, yes true.. Dust free.

      I loved the first haiku more so because of the image and the words chosen. That image is so haunting (just stare at the moon) you will see the infinite Cosmos. MAgical.

  12. Adjectives fall short in praise of these imaginaries. Somehow they reminded me of Gulzar Sahab. His “Chand ki bhi AAHAT na ho Badal ke pichhe chale” of Sathiya and your “TIPTOES the moon-thief.” And the blending of sorrow and beauty in second haiku is just.......... Hats off to you! :) :)
