The Perfect Equation


I have been
Lost
Between
Eileen
And my canvases.
Which comes
First?
Which comes second?
It is an inch long equation
As beautiful
As the universe
The canvases are hitting
Eileen;
It is a normal jealousy.

At the equation’s left side
Eileen is standing
Tall,
Warm,
And laughing.

At the right side
Is
My solitude,
My canvases
Are empty
Like my life;
White without any scratch,
Like a lost young dreamer
From the south
Crossing the desert
With
No fear or calculated risks
Only his dreams are contagious.

I closed my eyes
And I took a profound breath
To see and foresee the equation
And the two sides
Separately.
As I went deep into this day dreaming
The picture of the perfect equation
Popped out
Like a giant bubble
Surging from the deep ocean
I saw Eileen a part of the canvases
And the canvases are
Welcoming Eileen as
A new
Sibling.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
