A Breath

a breath bleakly escapes to have its say,

whispering stories of the diminished day,

of words, verbs soaked in lambent lights,

now snoring like sultry soldiers of night

  1. This piece had a weird effect on me, so to say. The lines reminded me how whenever we pronounce something, we are practicaly pronouncing it dead, too late – rarely ever managing to even describe the feeling that tried to convert itself into words.


  2. To me I think about this as being a breath escaping in the form of snores….having its say in whispers. And I wonder if those whispers will be remembered in the morn. Smiles. A short, but depthful, write.

    just coming back online after a computer crash…and catching up….hope you are well…
