The Golden Triangle - Poem by Niculina Oprea

As I open the window
another day’s arms embrace me,

I sell myself to a different sort of sleep
that waits in ambush.

on the back of the page
lines scattered at random
stab my eye,
my brain
my heart.

the golden triangle
its points fully engorged
will be sniffed out
by bloodhounds from the wasteland.

    Adi has intrepreted this poem so well that I caanot add much through my
    comment. I would like to emphasize the following lines comprising eye,
    brain and heart, the golden triangle;

    on the back of the page
    lines scattered at random
    stab my eye,
    my brain
    my heart.

    Good poem, Niculina.
    Regards

    Naseer

    I like the way this poem starts. A personification of a new day, as you open a window the new day opens its arms. Like all the beast poems I had to think about this poem for a while. The way I read it, is that this is a poem about reading poetry. Where the different sort of sleep is the relaxation of reading poetry and the golden triangle is heart, sight and mind. Well it won me over.10/10. (Report)Reply
