Tuft

One day
in the limbs of the sylvan sky
confining my eyes
a whole neoteric
opera house opened wide,
to an endless rendition.
The zephyr caressed
as I strolled through unseasoned land
the bleating of lambs
flowered a smile
on my springful face
the dew’s saliva
all over my mouth
bushed up my tiny frame.
The blue witness
showered petals all over
as I caved in your arms.
The stream once loud
is still
just
testifying
the blossomy lawn,
turning grey.
Your fingers trespass
freeing my tress
a throbbing sound resonates,
wallowing in the meadows
a woman
turned to clay
co-mingled with the earth.
You held the tuft of my locks
and hurriedly performed
the funeral rites
of all the dreams…
after all,

those were mine…
not yours.
