Thank you


Tonight's heartbeat
is as joyful as
the intermittent glow
of fireflies:

it plays a frantic game
of hide and seek
with love-filled stares;
it mimics seconds, and

the song of our steps
being poured into
the taste buds
of the earth.

What I really like about your poems is the lucidity... It's not as if you'd need to scratch your head (with any hair therein) to grasp what it was really trying to say, and yet no where do they slide down the edges of the lyrical metaphors in which perhaps, they were born, dreaming into itself.

Although poetry is not really my domain... I'm better off with prose myself, I felt I needed to tell you this.

Smile.
