My Sand Castle

Poem By nimal dunuhinga

I opened the creaky door and little windows.
Let wind comes to sooth me.
Nobody wants to stay for a while
And my burning altar cries.
I am scared to remain that opened.
The culprits may invade as saints in the middle of the night.
But in this empty house what they have to take away?
I have pawned everything that would never redeem.
The boisterous waves rolled up to the shore
And I slipped.
The string was broken and the kite flew towards the heaven.

Comments about My Sand Castle

Excellent imagery.The metaphor of the kite with broken strings is especially effective. Very poignant. Wishing you a better tomorrow. Warm regards, Sandra
