One Night Behind A Bell

 

 

Corners of flatter whispers

Slowly drizzling into bouncing hearts

a fading day —fades without ‘bobo’

Sisters are born

— through the womb of this dawn

childhood memories: torn in this morn

 

..

There is a girl

within two fighting crossroads

— one crossroad of chameleon colours

she listens not

to old folks: folks with no beards & hopes

 

..

The tree has survived the sun

In this soil — in this toil

for the Heaven’s

has foot the earth

Saving the dead & the dying: ‘Spirits’
