Ghazal To Pera Belle


love is now torn paper, thin, sea-blue and missing
never ask haunting hazel eyes why this heart longs

life has destroyed us while spreading-skies thinned letters
limping birds bleed loneliness onto sheet music

now razors scratch my dreams into this ruined wall
how could i know this much disappointment, now hushed

vague poems are my rubies, these alms won me grace
my jumbled days stammer, though their spinning brings change

now my skin is an unryhmed verse without your hands
never ask haunting hazel eyes why this heart blazes

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
