Broken Time II

The gushing stream

II

‘Good bye,’ the night whispered
‘Can you stay a little longer?’
the wind dusted night’s lies in all direction
so Aurora turned away in tears.

Time strolled on the line of red
loyalty went blue
the love of green sprang up in the street
where deceivers danced on God’s broken heart

Counting sheep
two gates
first gate open
count and second gate
open into the barn
no
I lose count;
one entrance
count and into the barn
no
they run too fast;
lead them one by one
into the barn
no
this takes time;
I will let them jump the fence
count and into the barn
no
some jump too low
get stuck in the fence;
frustrated
it’s been hours;
shall I lead them
to the slaughter-house?
no
they look at me with sad eyes
guilt gets me there;
I open my eyes
it is morning already
yawn
