1
 
Let not waves hamper
ripples do not matter
look, outside
cloud lines burst
 
2
 

Little children play
hop skip
my heart beats
hops, skips then
weeps
 
3
 
Bullets are easy
to get
shooting is not
guns smoulder
clouds, which is
what
I do not know
 
4
 
I know only
that in your
love
there is fire
weeping
rain pouring
smoke smouldering
 
5
 
Do not tell me
that ashes are
ridden of hope
in father’s funeral
pyre,
I saw his face twitch
 
6
 
Journeying back
into time
is fast forward
in life.
