Just when twilight and dawn finally meet
in the quiet passage of breaths released...
there in that moment, I witness
a thousand wishes dancing
through the shadows of my mind,
each and every one in the form of chiaroscuro
marked by restless eclipses black to white.
The yearning streaks of a journey
creating long and endless days
born from arrival and death of flowers
as season's rhythms cross the border
etched on zodiac runes : a pathway dictated
by calibrated blows of a horn trilling spaces
in moments caught in the web of hours, to seize
glimpses held by ticks of banged pendulums.
I find myself wrapped so tightly in woven memories
and places that I can hardly breathe or pause
when a traffic of past, present chapters
slices the flow offered by life
as chain-link of minutes quickly grinds
collecting people and milestones
along railways, while I desperately try
to escape the rising and falling by moon-sun,
endlessly bartering for more grace...
dear time, you steal my " now"
through your eternal, impertinent glide.
