The Tattoo!!!

My heart does not comfort
The dye that stains the silk
But my morning travel
To smell the dawn’s beauty
Was magnified in its senses

This image
Oh! This image
As I stare across the window
Of the train
Beautifully spread with the
Feathers of the peacock
Fancies its wings with
The cloud’s ointment
In the shake of the Sun’s dances

The words carefully nailed
With the stroke of the teacher’s pen
Passed excellently the message given

The melting of the bruises
Gave a perfect kiss to the beating
Flamed with the utmost gazing

The words
Oh! The words
Salivate my saliva

I carry my cross with Christ daily


(I wish I could take the picture, but I couldn’t as I was lost in its contemplation)
