The Bull Year

1
Mouse is penetrating in a sharp vain
Tigers have been silenced
Their claws clinging over the snow gradually...

2
It was doomed and dark
Like a metal shape
And slippery over the ice
It was badly dark and shadowy.

The creased moon has walked on my shade
I've buried the fish
The memory has been hanging from the ceiling.

This has been existed
For centuries
Dubbs a puppet
And mimes a gesture.

The avalanche
Broken latticed twigs
Maybe an origami
Forgotten over the years
And gone, ...

3
The glass coffin behind the window
Time is not passing away
The shadow on the pot.

Who's shivering on the window...

I've buried yesterday
My fingers have been numbed in pins and needles
Gripped thtough the time.

No end for the clouds
The lines are totally dark
The mirror has been walking in me.

It's chewed the buttons of my dress.

A flock of crows flying
The earth is a worn-out corridor,

A mass of ants invaded my house
It's been raining for seven hundred years
A blind's coming
And this year is a bull year...

4
The rabbit moving on the left
Had an intercourse with the snow
It's been a bloody intercourse,
The rabbit flowing in my veins.

    A flock of crows flying
    The earth is a worn out corridor,
    A mass of ants invaded my house
    It's been raining for seven hundred years
    A blind's coming
    And this year is a bull year...

    no doubt.. its a heart touching poem with touchy idea and good expression

    The poet with a flow of imageries and metaphors discloses a drama not outspoken with common but only with such expressions. Take a 10-. Be always of that level!

    The rabbit coming from the left
    Has made love with the white snow
    The rabbit's coming from my veins
    Has been in a bloody intercourse...

    Thanks a lot Rosa for drawing a tectonic plate between me and my hunger for something as sumptous as this. I'm bowled over. Just love it

    The creased moon walked on my shadow
    I've buried the fish
    The memory is hanged on the ceiling.
