I tried here in the library to look up “sternere” and merely moved close, mayhap. My OED (American) might offer insight. You? Best ask Yasmin. Yassy? Hey! You guys, just read and enjoy, the quibble can wait.
I lose myself ...among wildflowers.. I mind-cut through the rust of mundane thoughts... resuscitating words and laying them out in the radiance of the sun. the sun seeps gold through my hair....awakening slumberous reflections.. words shape themselves...cutting through the miasma.. my gut goes candid..I retreat into where I bleed alone.. holding on tightly to the unwavering companionship of my fervor.. an organic wind carries syllables to me.. I play my pen a quill haloed by mentors of destiny..destiny slams its door..like a zealot with the devil in his eyes. words course through the virgin of my sternere.. I have come home... #haibun
