about

A prologue to '...And That Was Just a Thaw...'

The rippled mirrors of the water melt
Reflect the omnipresent city drone
The southern wind has spread it like a sheet
Above the whole earth; it reaches every creft,
And every corner, where besotted birds
Exclaim the sudden spring to come with all its splendour.
But still it is December...

The cramped down backyards where we used to play
Before our thoughts had grounded forever...
The air cannot contain more odour of the melting earth
And fuming moisture, and it's overwhelming
The guardian of sanity - insanely vigilant, -
Preserving spirit from the avalanche of senseless joy,
Still he reminds that it is just a thaw...

The distant clouds make the Heaven looking high,
And yet still inculcate the souls with hope
The hope for better times, and calm, and warmth...
But ragged are these dreams, and ragged are the winter clouds,
And futile are their tries to force the sun from skydome...
It goes down early anyway, for that's the law:
It is December now, it is just a thaw.

The lucid dreaming was too sweet to wake,
But worthless, like the words of disenchantment always were,
And though I dreamt my winter found its end,
I guess it'd just begun, and spring will make me wait -
No reason to complaint, and to surprise
The truth's at hand, with all its sores:
It's my December now, and - that was just a thaw...
