Fairy tale for the night

A long walk
Down the shore,
Bright sun
Lonely crowd.


Watching our shadow
Moving along side,
Your hand in mine
Distant yet loud.


Collecting stones
Coloured brown,
Thoughts
Dipped in sand.


Flying birds
Watch us move,
Circling
High above the land.


Rest our bodies
Against the rock,
Now we
Move our eyes.


Sun starts
Swaying away,
Whispering
Sweet old lies.

Distant Dream

origamy


I heard a voice.
Impeccable diamond rain.
Gentle, from behind.


Followed a trail,
To the origin.
Diverted by the wind.


I travelled so,
All senses disabled.
Dragonfly in the town.


Flowers of paper,
Shivering earth.
Coloured pale brown.


I saw a tree,
Stopping by me.
Sun coated gold.


Often closed window.
World enacting peace,
With songs untold.


I looked at sky,
Lone on an island.
Stars now fade.


Fire never met ocean.
Couldn’t breathe the vibe,
Under their crusade.


I found the wild.
In the distant moon,
Scar of a rift.


Few more letters.
Lost elucidation,
In a dream adrift.
