Roi Kuko

Chanting on the broken glasses

As the shadows fall
And I lose you from my sight
I carry my breath in my hands
Ephemeral breath just to keep me alive
Around me, a silent land
a path, filled with broken glasses

But I can’t walk on these broken glasses
pieces of our story
under my bare feet
I tremble as I tread
and I bleed

But I’ll walk on these broken glasses
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
like moving waters
give life to my steps
I tremble as I tread

I will walk till I find you again
till I the fortress of our History
your love can turn these broken glasses
into weightless sparkles of light
and will save me

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
