Our Heart’s Visitors

 

A stranger’s talk

with a stony garment,

threateningly hovers

in our every step,

cold drops of courtesy

burn our breath.

Did hope ceased

to visit our heart?

The snow today

isn’t white.

It is colourless

like the iris of our eyes,

like good morning

which doesn’t come out of our lips.

Did love ceased

to visit our heart?

A torn poster

in the whirl of the wind

our every word,

blue pebbles

sunk in the blue of the sea

our dreams.

Did poetry ceased

to visit our heart?
