As I Went …



Like a static object

I cannot freeze


Between wind and time

I am a wandering person

Even the sky fails to cover me


On this earth

Green signatures

How long it’s been since I’ve seen


Whichever way I look, it’s a desert

As far as I can see, nothing


All the symbols

Have lost

All the metaphors

Fell off



Just one dried leaf


Heart dried up

Well of sad worry

I am digging


Thirst is not quenched

Distance doesn’t lessen


In diverging pathways

Don’t ask where I’m going



One route

Let my foot fall

Only in my step

Let the sky be seen.
