Loving Our Careers

sometimes i wish
God will give me old age
where i can
be another grandfather beside
a grandmother
and around us our
grandchildren

all noisy and naughty and
filling the old house with joy

there will be no blackout
and food will be served upon a call
of a small child
even with a small cry
the maid will be ready


it is only a wish
and will never be possible

we don't even have a child yet.
and we are already old and weary of waiting
what God once
promised which we perhaps did not hear
clearly
because we were then busy
loving our careers.

  9506.     

Loving To Live

I've been loving to see you live,
perhaps i live because of you, since you are the
object of all the world's gentleness,

I do not, actually, care much about the length of life
as i go for the quality of it,

For what does distance give us, except the mirage and the haze
and the lone silent hours of the days that give us nothing but the
boredom of repetitions?

I care much about this feeling, this transitory migration of
our caressing,
when it is gone, like a mist of a cold morning, what do i have in
return?

The sun is not ours, It is a traveler too in the randomness of
its bloating and shrinking

I am melting with your loss, and like ice which has no more meaning
for spring, I admit, i have resolved

to go back to where i was once air, and be gone for a long, long while.

who knows? when i come back, i will be in the same garden, the same
leaf, the same vein.

Loving You

loving you
i shall rejoice
clapping with
one hand

you ask me
if i can fly
using my left wing

you make a
conclusion:
this matter is impossible.

  9508.     

Loving You Is A Commitment

as you watch TV
I compose another poem
i think about you
as you watch that segment
of a magician turning doves
into air manipulating flowers
to become fragile butterflies
it's the magician that amazes
you to no end
at night before you sleep
you like to mention
those butterflies

tonight i write about a butterfly
turning into a woman
wanting to stay on my hair

i do not like magicians
the magic is dead
but even if you like magic still
i won't tell you what i feel

loving you is a promise
that i will fulfill
perhaps i must start believing
in magic
or else everything becomes
a matter of a
contractual obligation
a matter of loan with a mortgage
as security
where feelings
become irrelevant.
