Forgiveness. {Poem} ~ Aisha Chapra

7:13 pm.

a touch of color

begins at the


and it spreads through

the blank canvas.

bleeding through

the ripples,

the movement

soaks itself in.

and i ponder about


time of forgiveness.


the color

with my feet.


the words

with my mouth.


the landscape

with my mind.

floating on my back

the color soaks me through…

watch myself end

what i never began.
