Words

Morning tea is dark Like the night behind our house Where the sun lost its way And the air did not stop to greet our trees. We gaze at our place where we sat last night we know we'll leave everything behind us And won't collect the scattered words between the chairs. Night was long The candle is dusty and cold like our fingers Why do we wait for tomorrow If only to throw our words like pieces of papers on the table and leave?

Thank you:)) In the last two lines is the answer. Why do we wait for tomorrow if we only use few words, while we sit to talk and then just leave?

I spend much time on our veranda, day and night, it is reflected in a lot of my poetry. It a place where dreams are made and sometimes realised. Lovely write Khalid. God Bless. D.
