12 O’Clock

12 O’Clock

Two seconds before dawn.
10 Seconds after, sunrise.
Green light eyes look happy, glad and glorious!

In a week, I watched the Sun pass the Moon.
Autumn comes after spring and summer follows the winter,
no doubt, about it!

I say, all is relative, for what is life on earth.
I write, all meant more than I could possibly believe in,
for what’s a woman, so strong, convicted in her own belief?

I dream a poem,
it’s not worth, reading
but it was certainly worth, dreaming!!

Two fingers have become transparent.

The most beautiful sound in the world.
