Waking up the time

                   time is slowly waking up just

                   opening itself

                   to coolness and silence

                    dragging on,

                   carefully heading for the lake shore

                   the air smells new

                   but I can feel  leaves rot away

                   we welcome time

                   in an empty window with no shutters

                   I put a white lamp,

                   we walk along the shore, with wooden

                   sticks smashing

                   ice sheets in puddles

                   on the shoulders of time we put on

                   a coat

                   made of promises and hopes
