Fall Back

Fall Back short poem

Photo by Nick Kenrick.


We look over the hillocks
for the spread of orange red color
I do not know where it ends.

it does not matter if I
read the pulse of the rivulet
or the soul of a baul song,

the red soil for your leisurely walk
the barren land and dry leaves
make less likely to engage in,
no curtain call yet.

and for a moment between us
the early evening mist
to trust each other,
just a fall back.

a dream for seeing through
where the conflict ends
in unsung harmonies,
under a starry sky,

..
