In vain I stitched

On the fringe of dreams
I gather syllables
from scents
to sieve and sew
and patchwork into
quilts and mittens…

too late, but harsh
this morning light
in vain I stitched
the quilts.

  1. The hardest part of life is waking up, and finding our dreams, slipping through our minds, like quicksand. Leaving us, with a vague sense of lost, but not knowing why.

  2. I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing
    this website. I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade content by you in the future as well.
    In fact, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me
    to get my own site now 😉
