Peeling Paint

lives lived here, confined,
have long since faded with time,
leaving peeling walls.

Lens glued to my eye,
an hour becomes minutes.
Poem in a snap.

Through Locked Gates

Passing through locked gates,
casting shadows as it lights,
Evening shimmers.

Once, I thought the desert barren,
a lifeless, stagnant place
of no particular beauty or worth,
but as the years roll by,
and I, too, approach a desert
solely mine,
I find, to my delight, an oasis
of bittersweet contradictions:
life in constant motion,
whose sandy floor bears footprints
just as easily erased
as they were stamped on my soul
by eager visitors.

Fog swallowed the road,
shrouding in opaque cerecloth
the only way out,
and the visitors panicked
while the locals visited.
