Theme: Noon

In This Lazy Noon

In this lazy noon at the lonely window
Like a fleeting dream
I dimly remember my forgotten pain
In my adolescence
In the shy whisperings
I longed to hear the first words of love
Today in these hot winds
Why do they rustle with the leaves of trees
The hope that remained unfulfilled
In tears what I kept concealed
Why do they come back with the flower’s fragrance
Like sweet breathings
All day long they float in the shadows
Cast by the champa trees.
