Moonlight Goosebumps:  /         Your Tender Lap

Ranjith Sivaraman

Moonlight Goosebumps


Through the uneven emptiness

Of these dancing leaves of

Our favorite Kadamba tree,

rain out into me

as cloud soaked

Moonlight Goosebumps

Your Tender Lap

I was a nomad wandering

In the streets of love

Seeking a humble abode.

I delved the deserts,

Climbed the mountains,

Hunted the pearls

And slept fainted

On the river bank.


When woke up

The river was no more

But I found myself

Floating on your tender lap
