Dust


What should I do with the watered dust?
Soak its colour
Smell the rust
Such unforgiving powder.

So I scatter
While eyes look on
To a heart that matters
Pages under rain.

But in the time that is left
I do not remember
The taste I once kept
Paid in milk and honey.

I will cherish the light
Touch the rough splinters
Hammer nails with might
Into the cross of answers.

  4. Cherish the light... I touched on this with a description of enlightenment. We have a common perspective.

  6. I love: "I will cherish the light" Gorgeous poem~
    I love so many lines-there is a tender feel to your words, like an intimate dance
    one has with the "cross of answers".
