The birth of a poem...

The essence of very tiny detail, like a carefully placed comma, or an invisible sigh of admiration, distilled into dewdrops sliding over the long green leaves that protect tulips from overexposure, redeeming the beautiful bold color and adding a dimension of its own.

Then letting it go into thin air, like a weightless particle,arriving in far-away places, like a carefully thought-out idea, a blissful singular event, a flash of infinitesimal brightness, arriving at noon, completely negating shadows and at the same time completely absolving them.

The reign of calm arrived with these words and it is here to stay...

The Siren Song

At sunset the mermaid will sing

Tempting the brave sailor to join in.

The wave sinuously exciting the sea

Like a sensual woman, lying down

On a bed of blue oblivion…

Her silk gown slides from her back

She looks over her shoulder, the centuries stop

To recover their breath. It’s a sweet look

A look of sweet death.

All the promises he gave, have to be broken

He’s now her slave, a mere token

Of her mesmerizing beauty.

Lights and sounds travel across the sea,

To the island of forgiveness.

Music is the heart of the abandoned ships

And the midnight shadows bring no hope

Music is the pain that heals and kills.

Forever more. Always gently, but deadly

Like years before. Like the angel chorus at dawn

Waiting for tomorrow to unveil the illusion.

Until the death of time, love is a breath

On the lovers’ skin. Sing it all the way

Till the last flame of the sweet confusion.

Listen, it begins…
