5:00 am

There are days when I feel I have everything
Even when my hands are cold

It is the darkest hour of the night, let it be ours
I want to give you something, a small present for the early drive:

Disbelieve
What seems like the worthiest doubt —

A dead man’s words, his memory
Floating unambiguously up to speech

You know I perceive
Despite my proud silence

Down the highway slicing across the sky
You and I, lacing fingers, yet not side by side

  1. Your poems leave me awestruck Vera… and most of the times I find it hard to express. Now see this line: “You and I, lacing fingers, yet not side by side”… what should say, how deep you think, and how well you express. I love intelligent writers, (intellectuals are many) and you are one very intelligent one… πŸ‘πŸ‘βœŒπŸ˜€πŸ™Œ

    1. Gosh Sundaram, you are too, too generous. I am far from intelligent, let alone an intellectual. Words sometimes appear when they are ready. If you love intelligent writers, you must be narcissistic. πŸ™‚

      1. Haha…narcissistic….!! No!… I like it when someone knows the words, and the art to use them in a way to move others. It all comes from the heart, but the presentation reflects the thoughtfulness, the craft of the writer. And, I like you for that. Remember those interesting, creative ways you write your poems… So by intelligent I mean something that’s presented creatively, and sequentially, not haphazardly…and you do that again and again…

        1. Thank you, Sundaram. And when I say you’re intelligent, I mean you ARE intelligent i.e., brilliant, thoughtful, with deep mental faculties. πŸ™‚
