Communing with birds
I open my empty palm
expecting metaphors to light
like fireflies on my life line.
When I close my eyes
I can see the river Delta,
sweet green tarpaulin stretched
across the hemisphere and those
deep murky waters reflecting the
Fleeting memories disperse like clouds.
Just before sleep I sink deep
into illusory havens hoping to
escape the boredom of life.
