"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Let it be.


Crepuscular quiet dismantles seemingly
all the past that has tired these eyes,
while ancient rains falling from grey skies
wash away the ashes and pains that gave birth to tomorrow.

In a deep still new potentialities bind around your breath
as millions of counterfeit sounds could never compare to it.
just like in a long forgotten blast
shining light and darkness split afloat oblivious waters.

There shall be love, antigravity love waving
like a flag above the shores of this heart
broken, fixed and restlessly beating in burning thoughts
of “why not?” and of “now?” and “forever!”. Let it be.

  1. Your power with words, quite often takes my power of words away. Beautiful.

    • It’s interesting that you feel the description of my writing is “power”. We are all masters of our own words, indeed, but YOU are so much more powerful and resourceful than me. =}

  2. Well, I had to stop after the first word and google the definition of ‘crepuscular’, but after that was out of the way I fell in love with this and read it three times straight through. I adore words, and when people can string together powerful letters into more powerful poetry, I bow to you
