searching for you,
longing for your touch.
I gather the seconds;
and I plant them in water,
letting them take root in my soul.
Opaque petals of time and distance
create a bouquet of solemnity.
I wash my dreams in a river of tears,
and let them drift to the water's edge.
Along a balustrade of trees,
green tongues of grass speak softly,
whispering in the wind,
squatting in silence.
Searching for you,
Whisper In The Wind
in the wind
is so fleeting.
We can't hold on to
the dreams of yesterday
and forget our tomorrow.
Footprints fall down separate paths,
two long shadows connected as one.
Memories fall from the lips of a cloud.
Dreams are replanted in a veiled garden,
constant reminders of yesterday.
I worship their fragility,
as they whisper in the wind,
their breath smelling of rain.
They whisper the name
rushing from heaven.
Shade and shadow and night
cannot extinguish your flame.
You tear off a piece of the moon,
set sail upon the wind, and rain down
wearing a crown of illumination.
You plummet into the breast of the sea,
a lamp in the chamber of her heart,
burn her inimitable depths,
and then faint and fall away.
Every now and then,
we can glimpse your crown,
under the waves,
