I viewed you

I viewed you with 1/2 an eye
Grey sky
On the tip of my tongue were the words “pillow princess”
Calling upon autumn

I viewed you with 1 eye
Witnessed flying were the returning excuses
Wilting flowers yellowing in distant fields
Night momentarily mending the seasons with sack cloths

I viewed you with 2 eyes
With fresh flowers and green grass
Virtual sweet eyes honey on plump red lips
Forever a hummingbird

I viewed you
Through the eyes of a nemesis
A horizon red at dawn
Through your eyes saw the other side

“Đi qua một góc địa đàng
Mới hay trời đất cũng mang tên mình”
