frozen open in time

( after e.e. cummings )              
                
               
1  
from  corners   directions  
greets     breezes  
to rise   to plunge into  
a  surreal ness

   
2  
these small ones with  
humble blossom offerings  
frozen open in time  
before time    after time  
   
forever mute  in  their  
open mouth  prayer  
that fills the  mani cured  
half abandoned  gathered  
   
like their voices that spill  
from sorrow-filled eyes  
in the darkness of  dead  
men waiting  for  the  call
