fractured mirror II

 


 
 
 
Time
always fractures into
shadows leaving
shards behind –

something.
The flutter of a hand,
the curve of a neck,
a meeting of the mind.

Anything –
of a bond
the fight and the fire,
the fingers and the skin

of a flower
the desire, the scent
and the sin

of the bird,
a song and the absurd
of flight,

of the night
the impossible
spell:

ascent,

descent,

heaven into hell –

or the simple oblivion
of a memory of light.

So, what do you think? I'd love to know. Shall we start a conversation?
