Valentina Cano… Dials



A master at telling time.
That’s what I’ve become.
A being who watched arrows
and blinking lights,
fluorescence sprinkled over words.
Your smiles are seasons,
whole months of weather.
Vibrant with ticking,
they shape my days.
You have become a sundial for me.
I depend on shadows
to show me the truth.

1 thought on “Valentina Cano… Dials

  1. Subconscious Jungian reflective poem heartening as the sundial imagery still glimmers
    in the eye of the beholders, well self contained with reflective constraint.
