About This Poem

One Sign Will Suffice

I might inhale Mount Everest, 
From the stillness of these visionary 
windows,  
As I sample this slice of promise before 
me; 
The adolescent stem for an elderly 
blossom, 
That distant star that humiliates the speed of 
light, 
A heartbeat that facilitates an image, 
An image submerged in gentle substance.

The optimistic wind with its subconscious 
waltz, 
Tempts me with its solo trance of belief;
Maybe I can rediscover my crescent smile 
yet again, 
Inspired by the moon’s shadow before 
me, 
I’ll weep in its presence, and leave composure
in yesterday’s soil; 
Left asleep is my naïve youth, 
Who gladly finds no trace to her aura, 
For she’ll be there, 
Relaxed on virtue’s armchair, 
With answers written timelessly on her 
dress. 

The hint of faith melted between my visions, 
Leaves an aftertaste of joy,
It simmers from the backside of heaven; 
The request of tranquility’s permanent tattoo, 
With remnants of wisdom more fervent than 
flesh, 
Remains invisibly tangible;
If ever it decides a companion, 
Peace can finally meditate on my soul. 

Let the spectrum of green weaken the branches 
of doubt, 
And I’ll remain afloat, afloat on the outskirts of 
Sinful lake,
Where a fisherman never foresees any wrinkle 
stressing his way, 
And with this noble gesture intact, 
Men can conquer their crimes, and be 
reborn; 
I’ll never walk in pretentious sin ever 
again.
