AT THE DEAD OF NIGHT She walks on the parapet, eyes shut Her floral robes light as the wind Paces for what seems an eternity The empty bed and spouse miss her alike Half asleep, he murmurs her name She pulls at the misty curtains of slumber The venture ceases at once, swiftly descending Passes me, a regular witness to her wanderings At my concealed post, taps the floor mockingly Beaming, then glides to her chamber Embraces the dreamer, caresses his nape Removes the covers and joins him to sleep FLIGHT OF TRAGIC WINGS Under great threat, Daedalus, a craftsman father, Laboriously fashioned two pairs of mighty wings A word of caution for his son timely passes “Neither close to the sun nor abreast the sea!” Evading much harm, the duo mount the open sky Its infinite domain overwhelmed the unfortunate Icarus Soaring across readily, he imitates a fowl on the maiden voyage Against all attempts of recklessness, the seasoned voice sounds Sensing cold flutter passing his novel feathers, youth easily ignored Both speech and sight, and darted towards the doomed proximity, the Rival sun- his tragic wings undone at once, by degrees drop into the sea A COMMOTION OF THE HOLY ONES Siren Grecian creatures of faraway oceans Singing songs of collective shipwrecks Lyre laden charms; of them beware! Ambulance White creatures of nearby land Singing songs of collective mourning Laden with warning lights; of them beware! Lighthouse Solitary creatures of sandy shores Singing songs of collective caution Twilight laden walls; of them too, beware!
