  5597.     

At Midnoon...

now what you hear is only the sound of the rain outside

there is no lamppost, it has been taken away just this morning,
understandably there is no need for light
there is no feeling that
in the brightness of a new day
darkness can have digits

but i heard of a man who carried his flashlight
at noon
declaring that this city is as dark as the deepest floor of the ocean
where the gods
of rage have been hiding

and he warns that the rage continues
that we honestly still feel this matter inside the guts
of these modern days

that sometime the ocean will bring its own darkness
with the storms at mid-noon

and we who take pride of the light and the
grasses of the earth
will have something to write

perhaps not really that gentle and calm
and perhaps we are too clumsy for this

  5598.     

At My Own Pace

slowly i walk on a path
leading to the woods
taking a closer look at
the ferns and enjoying
the freshness of the
the air inside the cover
of the trees, my steps
are careful not to disturb
the peace of the birds
still hatching their eggs
on the nests, lizards watch
and worms keep their feast
on the rotten wood beside
the sturdy roots, the rain
starts to fall, i am wet and
now going back home.
something the silence of
nature, the glossiness of
leaves, the musical pit
pat of the rain strengthens
me: i am part of this
beautiful scheme,
preserving and not
destroying, seeing and
not taking, watching all
creatures live, listening
what this earth is saying.

At Night

at night
you find yourself
alone with the moon

the moon casts shadows
upon the trees
and roofs

there is always this wish
to grasp
what you cannot touch
what you cannot reach

they say
that is not possible

at night
you keep that wish
you keep that faith

that someday
your wish will become
another reality

then one night
you said goodbye.

  5600.     

At Night The Sound Of The Flowing Water

at night the sound of flowing water
(not as gentle as raindrops) come crawling in the tunnel of a dream,

i listen cautiously

i refuse to remember what is gentle and kind and compassionate

i have no veins. Neither i am a pipe of someone else

I am merely silence. And silence does not creep or

crawl.

It stays, it is a pool.

A worshiper of the moon, a lover of the night

that drinks the bounty of darkness, compromising upon the

slowed glow of

moonlight.

it is at this hour when the soul speaks, and the body listens,

friends again.
