  11573.     

The Answers Are Too Many To Be Said

i must tell you
about this trip

do not ask about
what's next

look behind us
they already burned the bridge

look over there
the house where we
live
cannot be seen anymore

do not ask where
is next

i am not sad
there are so many reasons
for excitement

you see
we have no more of that past

it is the bridge and the house
we do not need them

you see
we have so many places to go

the mind is our own
companion
creator

and imagination is
infinite

do not ask me
where we are going

the answers are too many
to be said

  11574.     

the ant empire

on the side of
an old mango tree
the ants built their empire
of
soft sand and
porous soil where they
hid their Queen
where the soldiers
heavily guard
where every worker
brings the food

one night
a heavy rain falls
and flood comes
and the empire
in an instant
is gone

the Queen is nowhere to be found
the soft sands level like a desert
the porous soil nothing but mud
the soldiers all dead.

  11575.     

the apology....

i am asking
forgiveness for the things that
i have not done,

not for the things that i
cannot do

neither shall ask an apology
for those that i have
done

for which i have carefully
taken my
stand

if i suffer
it does not really matter
upon myself
i stir.

  11576.     

the apple and the worm

you meet a woman
she wears a smile

and you pass each other
slowly by

she looks at you
and she seems to tell you

'i know you'

you step back
and gaze at her slender shoulder

''i know her'you tell yourself
silently

you remember her name
but there is no feeling anymore

you look back again
she is gone

but it does not really matter
the past is rotten

(she is the apple and
you were once her worm
and someone so nice
ate her whole)
