  4397.     

at the port of kolambugan

the news is that
another storm is coming
and our boat is still on this port
that we fear
for once there was terror here
a bomb exploded
planted by this unknown terrorist
and many died
the boat was burned
and many bodies still burning
jumped and drowned in the sea
most of them
children and women

i am sensing the colder wind
from the sea
the touch of the
coming storm
i can sense its strength
while i wait
for the decision whether
to go sailing or not
so we can reach the
other island facing us
with a warm welcome

i look for a sign
and see this pigeon
hovering above
my head
as though saying
warning

do not,
i have all the reasons
to listen

we sleep here for the night
we shall let this storm pass

  4398.     

at the prayer

the man sang
liberame, liberame
the guitar is mournful
and those who joined
the song
understands what is
grief all about

that His Thoughts are not
ours
He has all the reasons
we just don't understand
any word

and then the prayer ends
eyes begin to shed
community of tears.

  4399.     

At The Reunion Party (Grandma's)

to drown my well-kept storm
i purge words
too many like bats driven from
a cave
flying on barbaric sounds
and one of you looks at me
with a stab
but it will not hurt me a bit
i ignore
whatever tries to hurt
whatever skins me out to reveal
a damaged bone

think of me
as a happy bee that is all i can ask for
this moment
i shall like it
for what you think
makes me become
what i am not

the hours will run like a windmill
and water pours out
to satisfy the mouth of the hill
and i will be happy to see
something filled
a thirst satisfied

you see i admit i am wrong in
trying to be alone by myself
in doing so for the past days
i shrink like
a plastic bottle
heated by
a candle

i realize the link
it is always a you and I
and the rest of the people in the world
my feet are your feet
my hands are your very hands too
my mind is a lonely planet
lost without the sun
and the rest of the lonely planets
in this always moving
universe

i know what depression is
and now i know how to delet it.

  4400.     

at the river bank

the waters rise
and all my steps are taken
back to the
sands
of the river
in this place where you live
decently

when you come too early
you will see
what steps have i taken
and where i have been going

at noon when the children play
everything is mixed up
and you shall ask
what is the matter

the children when they are gone
leave you marks
and you do not understand

at the river banks of our youth
finally
all the steps when we get old
turn
into forgotten stories
