Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Yana Djin: Tender are the nights

Tender are the nights spent in a haze.
Stone-cold the days. Sharp-cut.
In this city that reflects the rays
against its windows — constantly shut.

.

Light as the breath of a child is love. 
Strong it is as life. 
Swim above the roofs and hover
over the daily strife. 

.

Fly just above the waters that part.
Gliding astray.
As if you were a stray dog’s heart
pulsate and pray

.

to the rhythm that will outlast me and you,
will outlive, outshine, out-die
and turn into a bare hue
upon your mild hazel eye.
