Little light

Little light

In this courtyard

I can play with the vanishing blue
it is all but eloquent silence.

when i see the clouds splitting blood

the leaves rustle in despair
drop me weightless, motionless.

in this space

rain soaks the wrinkled skin
still i can hear the perfect pitch.

when I sing a song for you
a little light washes my face

Going inside to greet you in my dream.
