Like chakor I search you
In dead of the night; After long
The specter visits

Prompted at: One single impression
P.S: Chakor is a bird that is supposed to track the moon all night ๐Ÿ™‚



  1. Thanks for including what a chakor is. Haunting little poem that makes me wish to stay up and spend the night with this bird.

  2. not much — or maybe even too much to love in a sliver of a newish moon — it is as you so nicely hint a specter of itself

  3. Pam welcome to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚ I know what you mean.. i love the moony moony night!

    Sandy.. to find moon ๐Ÿ™‚

    endurogirl.. i am glad that it affected u so ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sweet talking guy ๐Ÿ˜€ yesh it is.. but then so is moon no ?

    kitehorse yesh! You got it right ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. chakor, i didnt know that.
    im torn between feeling sad for the bird and feeling glad for it.

  5. ahh.. interesting ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I never knew of a ‘chakor’ before reading your poem…I like the idea of a bird that tracks the moon. I think maybe I was one of these birds in a previous life… :~)

    Very well done…thank you for sharing.

  7. Thanks for sharing this. I had no idea but the thought will resonate with me for a long time. Nicely done!

  8. You know I went right to my dictionary, when I couldn’t find it, I had to goggle .. and there it was … now that I understand, this is good.

  9. That pesky moon is hard to find when it’s past full and waning. Good poem!
