Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow by Aaishah Mayet

Aaishah Mayet | Jul 25th, 2020 | poetry | No Comments


I dream in colour
Vivid palette knife renditions
Block mounted
Framed in walk through galleries
Flowers for the living

I dream in black and white
Haunting shades of sepia
In negative exposures
Of putrefied pasts
Until my voice croaks
In perforating
Songs of light

Somewhere in between: I live
Swinging on Time’s pendulum
Stretching on her canvas
Developing on her film
And wondering: With the mountain behind us,
Which story is cast in the shadows
