A Blue Moon and the Yew Tree

Behind the yew tree,
hides a blue moon.
Its enthralling beauty ,
a silhouette of deity.

Blackness of space,
glows in faint light.
Simmering and flickering,
like zillion candles.

Silence of wild,
spread far wide.
But murmurous pond,
reflects the song of moon.
 The song so spirituous,
intoxicates souls .

Inebriated lovers ,
make abiding promises.
Their  eternal witnesses,
a blue moon and the yew tree.
