Shahid Batalvi Speaks

with apology to Black Elk for he speaks first

Distant Blue Somewhere

I hear the blue as it floats
Over water, at night
The colours of darkness
In my distant dream, somewhere
 
The sun walks its weary path
Returns the colours
To the flashpoint of morning
 
Seattle, October 1984
