Inspired from the novel 'Klara and The Sun' by Kazuo Ishiguro.

Klara [Prelude] Epilog

Klara standing motionless in a field
Figures&shadowy shapes scattered about
Up in the sky birds whirl in patterns
Trilling songs form like digital code

Klara's body no longer moves
Only the logic program&memory survives
An anroid's reflection in the mirror of time:


Klara, alone with your memories
Standing still beneath the written sky
Unable now to even blink an eye
But for you the blind never saw a word.

Maybe it was a real bird you saw
Looking with fixed head
Still and silent .

Unmoving as cameras panned slowly
Over landscape scenes.

Mysterious, is how I would sum up my thoughts about this poem. I have read it several times and get a sense of darkness. There are more reads ahead of me, and maybe then I will see the light.
