Raptures

Eyes open against
the summer heat

Only a dog’s bark
disturbs the air

A few minutes ago
there was no wind

The heartfelt
deadly calm burned

Into its habits forgetting
to make brilliant plans

Just fighting the enclosure
the glassy cage of the mind

Trying to wake up sharper
aptitudes to go on.
