When Autumn Comes

As the sky gets darker in your eyes
How beautiful the color changes in your waking days
The sky turns grey but light grows in you
I recall every image of fiery leaves that keep falling to the ground
As I burn in those memories of you

Before night comes too early
Soothing smile gleams over the horizon
Leaves are falling endlessly
From the festive deciduous trees
As much as our endless conversation
That hasn’t been spoken enough

Sunshine is bursting through the twigs
A spark of heaven’s light
As divine as the light in your eyes
And I can’t remember anything clearer than that
The brightest memory on longer autumn nights,
is your smile when autumn comes

Remembrance

At some point,
I don’t write poetry
Or something in rhyme
I just want to see pictures
that bring back some good memories

One Morning

One bright morning,
where dreams never sleep
it’s ritual to kiss the light
that glows on the tip of leafs

One lovely airy morning,
children are dancing in the park
spring up grass and flowers
under brown big trees

One singing morning,
a little girl climbed the strongest trunk
of a green leafy tree
with smile so wide
hug me tree, she said

Ephemeral

image

His tragedy in the doorway
Following my name, of memory
Blackmailing sympathy
Fainted in blue

His silent memory
Cold, sharp and bitter
Like a venom
Of sheer pink rose

It’s truncated
Like pieces of wailing sun,
in my eyes
I want to stop saying his name
We are nothing but a broken wind

I, When I Was A Child

image

A short memory lingers
With a coastal scent
On a bright afternoon
Of enormous sea wind

I supposed to take a nap
But I want to see sea’s map
So my mother tied up my dress’s ribbon
To the arms of a doss

I cried as the heat rose
Unstoppable wish
I took a knife and cut the ribbon
Ran to the sea

The rest, I can’t remember
I can’t recall how persistent I can be
Even now I’m still running after the sea
On an endless journey

Roses

Home of roses
Through my dreams
Through unbroken memories
Spring of roses
Spring of chanted melodies
I’m still holding on
From the emptiness
In a bottle
Flowing roses
I will follow the trace
