Coffee night echoes

A rain soaked evening with pages from history
chapters soaked in sunlight,
mildly smelling of coffee.
Cigarette smoke memories
curling, curling
defying aqueous gravity.

It's a crowd here;
gypsies and metalheads,
seers and the firstborn bloom,
artists and acrobats.
Jostling, jousting
ripping apart
the Shaper's fabric.
From his ebony bed, he smiles.
All ends are pregnant with beginnings.

The ascetic dancer looks on,
for him
it's deja vu.

Coffee night of echoes.
On nights like these,
madness shouts back,
stares you in the eye from Liquid crystal displays.

is it so easy to forget?
better light another cigarette.

Hope persists beyond reason.

  3. 'chapters soaked in sunlight'- beautiful imagery.

    My reason has often had the urge to call hope out to the streets for a duel. :P
    As you point out....pointless...hope prevails.

    very moving...keep posting
