Long after your eyes
Get settled in the sun
To count the tiny birds on the branches,
Go off in a corner,
Until just about everybody knows,
You open the glass window.
To explore the mirrored images,
The moment of truth
You want to set aside before,
To be sure to hope for fair weather;
The sun rays on a trajectory collide
With your retinal nerves,
May be its true, may be not
Well after your slow strides,
The metaphorical dimness of light
Lurking in the room,
Starts to mean something,
You ignore for a while.
Let the secrets flow in silence
It’s a way of looking things
The inner voice has no tune
Just to deepen the despair,
Is that fair to say you should win and will?
The morning sun has no answer.
