I could be


I could be a dragonfly
Floating in the crystal air
Drying the last drops of the morning dew
Off my wings in the groggy sunshine

I could be a leaf
Free falling on to the river
Making small talk with the reeds before
Mingling with the ocean waves and breaking on your shores

I could be a poet that
Writes in the darkness
With eyes shut tight
On the inside of his eyelids

Or,

I could be the breath that
You catch between words
The “comma” in your sentences
An unnoticed “alpa viraam”...

For you,
I could be
Anything.
