Today at Dawn

(c) Famida Basheer


Today at dawn

as I walked along a cobbled street 

I smelled the remnant powers

of  yesterday's jasmine in the air;


jasmines nodding 

on dew ridden stems

stretching up to a swaddled sky 

newborn among burlap horizons.


Today at dawn 

as I walked along that cobbled street

I followed my thoughts like a patient dog

that had lost its way home.


Smaller thoughts 

like the fleas that run along its belly 

burrowed within my other thoughts

then vanished within themselves.


Today at dawn

I thought deeply of a  morrow

and created mind pictures of cans and cannots

which were as untrue as is all imagination. 


Tomorrow, I think I might think of today.

Tomorrow my faith will revive.

Tomorrow, I think I might think of today.
