The Wisher of Wings

unicorn-moon-header-0011795366634


Blue laden Moon hanged aloft.

Hiding in the corner of nature is Hope;

while over the meadow of the Mythical Steed,

a Star is falling and falling…

On its peak the Meaning concealed,

the bottom kept a secret of Dawn,

both sides thinning and thinning,

pouring into the Endless Love.

 

The green hornet flew above the pastures,

searching for the wellspring of Wisdom,

thinking about the smell of roots…

He trotted beside.

 

Vast and vigorous, with tightened muscles,

the mane undulated by a whiff of  Zephyr,

he was tall and wispy, gold and silver,

with a deep black stare.

 

Anchored in direction of his aim,

he abandoned his home long ago,

yearning for indigo skies

slowly drove him away.

The Star is summoning to its realm.

 

His nostrils wide, breathing painfully;

sore legs and clenched chest,

Yet he cannot stop. The desire is great:

He would soar into the dome of clouds.

 

The swirl of his horn pulling him to the ground,

steam stemming out of his pores,

stepping over the soft, fragrant grass…

(but he cannot stop, no, he cannot stop).

 

The river flows by, gurgling drops of blue light,

dry is the tongue, the burning mouth…

Home is calling aloud.

 

Swarm of bees buzzing in the mind,

flock of birds is pecking about,

just a few thoughts — few bright sparks:

The Wings are there! Endure! Come on!

 

… slowly reaching the end of the road,

down-at-heel steps — he’s walking now,

laden as the Moon, as pendulum sways,

nearing the edge of depths…

 

Hiding in the corner of nature is Hope,

while over the meadow of the Mythical Steed,

a Star is falling and falling…
