Turn pages

Turn pages

Facing straight ahead, your eyes look blank.
just out of mess and ruins,

veins of your skin turn scarlet red.
in a matter of a few syllables,

as if I am made to form,
reveal the eternal, care for nothing else
all the time behind.

a spark, a tiny thought revolves in my mind.

the smallest play of the green leaves
in the branches,
can erase the wounds and scars.

undeterred the law of life; we grow silent.

out of this trust, we live in response
that lay ahead,
turn pages to history.
