In one go… #6

Waiting for The Microscope

It will be, maybe, one day
a breath of wind.

It will be, maybe, that red leaf
of a maple tree already bare
that falls slowly to the ground.

It will be, maybe, the first fog
of an autumn morning
that wraps around the nearby horizon.

It will be, maybe, the colors of a new canvas,
a perfumed summer dawn,
or a sunset that makes the sky explode.

It will be, maybe, the too noisy silences,
the useless chatter of people,
or some off-key note.

Or it will be, maybe, just an ingenuous word,
pronounced badly,
that will suddenly know how to make you laugh.

It will be, I think, a miniscule detail
to make you think of me, again,
to remind you, suddenly, of who I was.

Who I really am.

Who knows if you will smile,

Or, maybe, it will only take time.
That one without rules, ever.
Least of all for us.

Or maybe not.

I, in the meantime, lay down my arms.
I put down my pen.

Maybe, after all,
I ought to quit
trying to get to you.
