Chapati moon

Moonlight is back on roof and sky,
Flour rolled into dough for chapati
For us to take a bite after bite daily.

A coconut will at times take its bite
But a new chapati is always rolling.
Women are holding up their sieves.

Men are reading boring daily news.
Wives will see their faces in sieves
The round and perfect full moons.

(On Karwa chauth , after completing a day’s fast for husband’s well being , a woman looks through a sieve first looking at the rising moon and then at her spouse)
