I look for the rainbow every day.
It does not matter that the day is
Gloomy, foggy, cheerless
And the sky is covered by
Heavy, stormy clouds.

The rainbow sleeps
In the drops of rain.
Warmed with sunshine,
It stretches on the sky like a bow
And blooms with six colors.

I blow away the worries
Together with grey fog


I walk along the streets of the town,
Which I once loved.
Today, I am an indifferent stranger.
I barely recognize it.

There are no more old, hospitable aunts.
No more nosy neighbors hidden behind curtains,
Or brave men with war stories.
They are gone.

Time changed everything,
Not only the people, houses, streets and trees.
It seems to me that it even
Repainted the shade of the sky


Large drawers,
Fat dragons with big bellies,
Swallow the pages of my poems.

Saved careless letters,
Scraps, bits of thoughts, dreams, feelings
About which I have been musing.
Scrambled words
On what you need and do not need -
Napkins from the bar,
Small pieces of paper,
Lie dormant.

Maybe someday
I will open the drawer.
From the cocoon of pages
Will hatch poems, as colorful as dragonflies,
Or  like crickets chirping,
And they will fly, who knows where,
And to whom
