Boast Of Quietness

Writings of light assault the darkness, more prodigious than meteors.
The tall unknowable city takes over the countryside.
Sure of my life and my death, I observe the ambitious and would like to understand them.
Their day is greedy as a lariat in the air.
Their night is a rest from the rage within steel, quick to attack.
They speak of humanity.
My humanity is in feeling we are all voices of the same poverty.
They speak of homeland.
My homeland is the rhythm of a guitar, a few portraits, an old sword,
the willow grove’s visible prayer as evening falls.
Time is living me.
More silent than my shadow, I pass through the loftily covetous multitude.
They are indispensable, singular, worthy of tomorrow.
My name is someone and anyone.
I walk slowly, like one who comes from so far away he doesn’t expect to

100 Words

He was moving that day like a whirlpool near window from where I could see every minute detail as vein on the leaves, paw of chirping birds, even the dampness on his face. This happens once a while describing purity of emotions when everything else looks miniscule in bigger picture but what remains is the hand full of memories we soak in sunny days and keep them for inundated warmth. I fear those days may never intercept. Sometimes it’s difficult to choose from ocean of pearl, once you pick, taking care becomes eternity and eternity never is possible.
