Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | Why fear the summer in your eyes (96)

Dedicated to all the young poets out there.

The bright wrinkle, your smile
Caught between the endless twilight

Dedicated to all the young poets out there.

Why fear the summer in your eyes
The bright wrinkle, your smile
Caught between the endless twilight
Between the bees, the spring
The laughter, sweet nectar
Trapped in the layers of time
On lashes, butterflies
The heat of summer.
You’re ageless.
