Summer Be Gone

Poetry
 Close your eyes
I am here, by your side.
I want to see
the withering hibiscus.
Once more.

It yearns for water,
Yet you are condemning it
To an early death.

Switch off the lights,
Until Momo comes along
With his languid stride.

Forever imbuing the room
Of tranquil wisdom.

Self-induced ostracism
To some it appears,
But I call it instead
The calm purity
Of solo living.

Close your eyes,
I am here, by your side.

Let light be gone.

Forever imbuing the room
Of tranquil wisdom.

I do not want to see
The withering hibiscus
Any more.

Just close your eyes.
And let summer be gone.
