I am you today

In the melancholic time,
when the dark howl craws
In the harrowing soils mask,
where the river flow is backwards
I bask in the sunshine,
towards the bridge of memories.
my skin knits
I am sun-kissed today,
like a morsel of apple-pie
sulking on my white bare skin
I am a memory today.
where the sweet honey clings my tongue
pouring my holiness into your laps
I am a pattern to be formed, embellished
I am aliferous today, this moment.

  1. Sounds like an out of body moment to become a memory, an unformed pattern and winged. I like the contrast between melancholic time and basking in sunshine. While the body, or mind for that matter, is in a melancholic state, one’s soul can be in another. Once again, great imagery and a unique twist of words.
