One Sublime Poem by Moe Seager




Morning gives to afternoon

Time to tuck away dreams, desire, inner being

Corporeal gravity of transparent routines, anemic rituals

Rain, Spring returns from exile

Sucks on Aprils nipples


Thunder claps, falling waters

Herd us against each other

Repelling most in hurried flight for home

Where we are absolutely safe

From nothing

Witness those drowning

In the empty vessels of themselves


Oh this day would be dull, boring

Were it not for the occasional flash

Of bright umbrellas

One, the colour red

To remind us 

We are


My umbrella is a tent

I a nomad

Wandering through this village

Not quite sure of how to conduct myself


By chance, design?

We come upon each other


The solitude of two


Too soon it is time

You must go

I shall wait

Beauty is stubborn


Perhaps it will rain tomorrow
