It Is Hope…

Hope is a risk that must be taken
Georges Bernanos

It is hope
that flashed
in my eyes

Not a flame
not a fire
nor a tear

That will stumble about the sleepless

It will return after a few

I Do Not Write When I'm Happy

I do not write when I'm happy
in joy — I have no words
Except sometimes during September
after the summer — I’m on last legs

Only spring summer
is my solace
I will repay them for this
giving back to all dreams

I want to sing dance barefoot
smile to the stars
Greet mornings with dew
measure time by weather

I do not write when I'm happy
in joy — I have no words
Except sometimes during autumn
I grab for the pen again

Soap Bubbles…

To my sons
The deepest sorrow of happiness
is that everything passes
Leopold Staff

Soap bubbles
fabulously colourful
So beautiful
but fragile
All the same
in a clear glow

Like the evanescence of this
inimitable only
which will not come back
in the same form
