a silent vigil

the ice has taken hold between the two passages,
carrying the crystal white burden of dreams
and the languages of intrinsic qualifications –

to choose the fog over mist, slush over dirt,
and to keep frozen into stone all deals upturned,
all wishes parted by a moment’s touch –

lost is the sudden acquaintance with sensation,
I am near the end, I am at the edge, always dazed,
glorified by the fear of tumbling down – just the bliss
of never seeing the light

for it’s hard to dream with open eyes, for it’s hard
to see through your lips where you reside –

who ever said that this mosaic of understanding is fulfilling?

that blithe sun has devoured all else.

you are the halo, the shadow, the skin to my desire, the symbol
to this paradigm of pain,
and I keep up my silent vigil,
I wait.

(No)Credibility Haiku

credibility-

promises made of spring days

prevalence of snow

prevalence of snow

credibility misplaced

pledges unfulfilled

pledges unfulfilled

atop money demons sit

we still await spring

*For Carpe Diem # 250 Credibility. Congrats to Kristjaan and all the participants for the 250th prompt. I have been a part of community not for long but I have received a very warm response and I thank you all for that. I apologize for I am not able to read all your contributions, I am dealing with certain technical errors right now.

And that is when my dream breaks…

The cackling of the birds

the sound of the church bell

the whoosh of the lightly blowing wind

the drop of the drizzle like snow

the faint laughter coming from across the road

while I am sitting here

watching through an old tainted window

sipping on a cup of hot tea

a faint smile appears on my face

and that is when my dream breaks.
