there in the ocean in my eyes where
a million secret pearls hide –
your fragrance undulates
silently –
painfully –
through the cactus day – when the purple
twilight glimpses your ageless
reverie – the night deserts the
sky and hides its tears
in the ocean
in my eyes –

tomorrow the dawn will ask me why the sun failed to

rouse the day – I will say I saw the sun playing with the

pearls and now your fragrance shimmers with a golden

light like a vision of paradise –

in the ocean
in my eyes –
