Ali Znaidi- A Poem

A Dream’s Breath—
A hint of spring in your breath
to take me to new horizons
where there are no rotten eucalyptus
leaves on the dry ground.
A hint of spring in your breath
imbued w/ the ambrosia of angels
to take away the cruelty
of the sirocco wind,
& to wipe out pessimism &
in unsettled souls.
A hint of spring in your breath
to fill in the empty glasses w/
red wine imbued w/ Apollo’s
majestic grandeur.
A hint of spring in your breath
to decant life into the dead
chalices of aspirations.
