the was of the will be

for a friend who makes me think 🙂

i open your book of poems
just like old priests open the bible
in search for masked predictions of future –

and just like those priests i find
that the future doesn’t change,
only the moment when we contemplate it

just like the heart that my child will draw on some train’s window
will always be a heart even if
my child isn’t born yet
and that window is still merely sand.

    Wonderful syllables wrapped in simplicity, yet carrying a depth of meaning within their fold
