“The sound of your name” (Copyright 2008)

“The sound of your name”

 

The sound of your name,

resembles ringing bells.

Or the flickering noise,

of the herd of singing quails.

I awaken in the middle of the night,

11, 12, sometimes 2 o’clock,

and I faintly whisper your name.

But your never there-which breaks my heart.

There’s only your picture,

then there’s your name.

Which I say over and over again.

It sprinkles over my head like the touch of drizzling rain.
