stormy kind of wind –
a door slams in the gaze of
a pigeon cooing

Carpe Diem #1306 The Secret Well of Life

Kristjaan has prompted us today with a Quatrain from the Rubiat of Omar Khayyam

Then to this earthen Bowl did I adjourn
My Lip the secret Well of Life to learn:
And Lip to Lip it murmured - "While you live
Drink ! - for once dead you never shall return.

Thirteen nuances in the silence of pre dawn

I
silence of the wind-
another blossom torn
from the Plumeria


II
what the winking stars
tell of lovers' hearts -
the silence keeps

III
except for the moon -
silence and keyboard taps
my companions

IV
the house gecko -
a movement on the wall quick
as a shadow

V
reading at night -
a page turns in tune
with the silence

VI
the wall clock ticks -
against a background of silence
its rythm stays

VII
awaiting the din
of birdsongs -
pre dawn


VIII
pre dawn -
no sound from the roosters
up in the mountain

IX
sway of leaves store -
silence and the wait
of bird songs

X
tree silhouettes -
the wind plays lightly
among the leaves

XI
drawn curtains -
pre dawn holds a silent pledge
onto itself


XII
words
in deep silence held -
in trust of poems


XIII
soft light of dawn
the songs of birds called
to delete the silence
