Surreal flash #poem


Impeccable silk walking through  the carbon cars

aligned in static red

at traffic lights,

Chekhovian silhouette veiled in a cream-colored-blouse,

a seagull’s flight over the cities’ web of wires

and withered flowers offered for a coin.

A surreal flash dove through my trembled flesh.

How could I know you hid

under her furrowed skin

the teeth unseen

deep in her voice

her spoken words

your love for me?

How could I know you would disguise

inside the beggar’s eyes?

I was just waiting for a change in light.

P.S. Forgotten, this poem remained for about four months when this story happened for real. That woman thanked me for buying her bouquet adding these words: ‘May you be loved by people as you are loved by God.’

I will never forget this exceptional experience of my life, nor its impact on the state of mind.

  1. This is fantastic, Daniela. The unspoken love hidden in a flower, the beggar’s eyes, the change in the light that perhaps will change everything as the appearance of the flower changes. Tribulations inscribed on the impeccable silk of your poetry. Gorgeous.

    the teeth unseen
    deep in her voice
    her spoken words
    your love for me?

      1. You are so welcome, Daniela. This magnificent poem touched my heart in so many ways.
        Sending you love inscribed on the petals of a flower. And even if the light or the space may change the look of the flower, the love stays.
