This little corner


There is this little corner

piling dust in silence,

applies to you and me,

taking refuge in the dark

lean shadows as well,

reading each other’s lips

conceal our dense feeling

not merely who and why

the other side of the wall

answers all but forgotten faces

alight with interest,

the strong breeze brings an dreadful voice,

a sense of being haunted by the shade,

by now the yellow moon passes over the mountain

holding it up to the light

night is full of such moments

final act not visible from earth.
