Watching Tv


Wisdom highlights giants and illuminates sorrows.

Guns, explosives, drugs, chemical weapons,

All combatting with human kindness.

Roaring above the head,

The dark clouds half-closing their eyes.



Taking A Walk


Immersed by the spell of dreams

I went for a walk

To look for flowers

And discovered a bright light

Which lifted me out of the darkness 




Gently on the surface of the sea

A candle one cannot blow out,

A silver mouth

Before the dawn

Murmured in the water
