Undisturbed in the confines

Of longing.

Embellish sadness

With burst of colors

To mask the pain that sleeps

Beneath.

Wash away the dusts of yesterdays

With tears

Empty the gathered mud to the pond. 

Feed the water glorybind

And lilies with tales

Untold.

Let the colors of their petals

Reveal the secrets.

Let the water glorybinds

Narrate the stories

When they awake in the morning ~

Over and over ~

As they traverse

Through the pond

Where my heart hovers

Since the damselfly flew away.

 

Listening ~

Quiet and resigned ~

To distant melodies

Hoping for familiar songs

 

Still.

Jeques, Spring 2011
