Morning Again…

A tear is the most expensive pearl
Søren Kierkegaard

Morning again
I wake up lethargic
with the word:
"I wish, I desire..."

And a chain of pearls
I put around the neck

Like a heavy tear
but one

I would take off

I Bow…

Without suffering, one does not understand happiness
Fiodor Dostojewski

I bow
to you
your Pine highness
and to you
my slender Birch
when animals and people
fail me,
through the bark
to the heart of the trees I knock
I give my hand
to the rustling branches
and the trunk I embrace
In the cloudy morning
and rainy evening
with you
I cuddle


To Friends

Friends are like silent angels
who lift us when our wings
forget how to fly
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

will become possible
and a dream
may come to life
when these banes
malicious creations
will not crawl out
like a snake from under the leaves

will become simple
and easy
when a single link
will not break up
A chain of hearts
those kind
those tender
will fulfil the dream
and the day will come
