Hope – A poem by Ayesha Salman

I had earlier posted a few poems by Ayesha Salman. She has sent me her new poem which, true to her style, is original and inventive with the diction. 

Hope
 
You pour in me deliciously
Soothing my mind
Settling my soul
Steady in your faith
Aching for a promise
left unsaid
 
A green breeze sweeps us up,
In slow mornings of dazzling jasmine,
While the pendulum ticks on
Waking us- to red grass sliding beneath our feet
 
We live in the shade,
you and i
the cold white light between us.
