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.
