Ilhem Issaoui

Ilhem issaoui
Mine amaranth
dewdrops on leaves
fluttering fledglings
art all an echo of my
adamantine longing
the shadowy deciduous trees
the fallen leaves
during the indian summer
such is mine melancholy
and my mundane amarulent life
mine amaranth ,albeit the despair
I am clad in
that renders me hapless
like a moribund
I still believe I shall ,
among dispersed nenuphars ,
catch a glimpse of you
catch a glimpse of you
