Verse 2

It arrives from unknown streets

It arrives with apprehension and is shy

The moon has been used as a feminine symbol in poetry for centuries. In Greco-Roman mythology, the Sun and Moon are represented as the male and female, respectively. It symbolizes the passage of time and Gulzar aptly describes the passage of time using the moon as a tool.

Verse 3

Look at the red coloured powder on its face

The moon keeps raising dust persistently 

WORD- Ghaza- A red coloured powder used by women to paint their face. Here Gulzar uses the word to describe a Lunar Eclipse – when the moon positions itself directly behind planet earth. It happens when the sun, moon and earth are aligned close to each other in a straight line. It results in the moon looking blood red in colour.
