POEM 294: ABA IS A STORY


Aba is a story painted with thoughts
a story tinted with feelings

Aba is a story of multi-painted walls
of sreets overrun with expressions
of the rich, the poor, the wretched.

Aba is a story filmed with memories
growing in value with time
refining to gold her scars

Aba is a story of history on pages
of merchants and sages
lit with lovers and dreamers
that hold hands across miles
and kiss the moon with rhymes.

Aba is a story
I am a chapter unfolding

Again, this is not a poem.
