A heart ajar


A heart ajar

A heart ajar
a dream half seen
in a chest
whose lid was
quickly fastened.

A heart ajar
a smile half
delineated
upon a flake
of snow
which in
no time melts.

A heart ajar
a long beautiful sentence
whose verb
never dared
to come out
in the light.

A heart ajar
a poem half read
before you reach
its climax
and touch
its heaven.

A heart ajar
a love
drawing near
like a ray of sun
you try to catch
but will
always flee.

Love
and it may
open,
though.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
