…… Distant Shores

Rating: 5.0
Twilight song of a cuckoo
taps the window softly.
Gothic tree and drooping sky
humble my thoughts.
Past was me.
I will know then
why your hills turned away my clouds
by shifting sands.

Was it a colossal guilt of tomorrow?
Which never wanted to become present

I wanted to invite the death discreetly while praising the life and listening to birds without dropping the history from my crooked fingers. Between yourself and myself a sea was surreptitiously raging. The waves were dividing the shores. The two best stanzas I have ever come across... Loved them. Felt the inner sorrows of some separation... Deeply touchy and nice work Sir. Many thanks for the poem. It deserves 10.
