  11565.     

SUMMER....

summer has become
an infidel
the rice grains are feeling betrayed
the beach abandoned
the sun is not in its
usual form
and the moon veils its face
with dark clouds
the frogs laugh so loud
the crickets are crippled....

  11566.     

sun of life to me

after the rain
there is a crack
on the surface
of the soil
a seed in there
begins to show a tip
looking for the first
sun of
its life

  11567.     

Sun/Moon

the moon always comes alone
sometimes the stars accompany her
caressing
the light of her golden hair
that she borrows
from the sun that
she loves
but is condemned
never
never to be
touched
even for just once.

  11568.     

sunbathing

one of the things i like to do really is to bathe
under the sun
as though the sunshine is like water
raindrops
on my skin

i like being warmed a little bit by these sunrays
as i feel them like fingers on my face
and body
and legs
and toes

i like the sun penetrating my heart
piercing it with its heat

because mT heart is freezing cold
as dry ice
and melting it may help me live
some more
direct to vapor

another day perhaps or months
another year will be too long for a bonus

well, i have learned one lesson like what Jorge Luis Borges
the dead Argentinian used to preach

i will have more of the lighter moments
more fun
less serious
and yes more engaged more accepting

yes, yes, and more yes to everything

'I'll try,
- to make more mistakes,
I won't try to be so perfect,
I'll be more relaxed,
I'll be more full - than I am now,
In fact, I'll take fewer things seriously,
I'll be less hygenic,
I'll take more risks,
I'll take more trips,
I'll watch more sunsets,
I'll climb more mountains,
I'll swim more rivers,
I'll go to more places - I've never been,
I'll eat more ice creams and less (lime) beans,
I'll have more real problems - and less imaginary
ones'

I think i like Jorge say some more..
But i have no time anymore

from his final words:

If I could live again - I will travel light,
If I could live again - I'll try to work bare feet
at the beginning of spring till
the end of autumn,
I'll ride more carts,
I'll watch more sunrises and play with more children,
If I have the life to live - but now I am 85,
- and I know that I am dying...


I AM NOT EVEN 85 YET.
