moments curl against my skin
flowering like tea-buds
i smile, and
on the inside i’m empty

windows frame time,
trapping reflections
of soliloquies-

silence tints amber eyes
the moon is halfway
she smiles, and
on the inside she is me

  1. the being empty on the inside can be read in different ways..there’s this good emptiness when the brain shuts down and we come to a rest…love the images..the halfway moon..the tea-buds..nice..

  2. Funny, of course tea trees flower — I never seen them (or I don’t think I have). So I snuck a peak.

    “Moments curl against my skin” — great line.

    I’m wondering how you saw the moon and the tea buds at the same time. And I wonder what it means for you to be inside the moon. Fun images — but a little puzzled.

    • The moon is halfway meaning its almost night, and from the last line I meant on the inside even she is empty and alone like me despite the glowing happiness.
      As for tea-buds, you put them in hot water and they bloom beautifully.

  3. Hey Mohana,
    Ah, I imagined a half-moon, just after the crescent.
    Wow, that would be cool to have tea buds bloom in a beautiful glass of hot water.
    Or, are you referring to packed-tea and not the actual buds on the tea tree?
