The Mint Canopy Is Our Galaxy And Asylum


The mint canopy

Is our galaxy and

Asylum where we

Whispers melting

Words and bright

Sparks of love


These eyes that

Blink at many wonders

Meet together in between

Paradise and miracle

And exchange

Glances like twin

Towers twinkling

In the atmosphere


We quiet our lips

From the noise that

Leaks like drops

Of big waters

In the Pacific

And lulls ourselves

In the cradle of

Many dreams


These alterations

Of four seasons

Are constant

Reminders that

Change is forever

And crashing our

Tiny fears we

Disappear from
