Find not love (2)


Look for something not fragile
as a sparrow's egg nestled
on a branch of a tree
not as spacious as the blue sky from
where you are imagining so many things
that may not after all
happen in your lifetime
not as real as a mirage on the desert where
once you were lost and luckily
found almost dead
look not for long and lasting love
find it here inside a house
where the roof may leak
where the hinges of the window
are rusting
where the water pump is struggling hard
to pour water
to a child whose eyes are buried
upon its sockets
badly needing a drop of water
a grain of rice
a fish bone.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
