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...

Blue


This here now. Big blue.
Silence. Blessed calm. Knowing what I want
Knowing there’s no more anguish and expectations.

Blue everywhere.  Everywhere I turn.
Even the blurred corners of my field of vision
Melt into nuances of finest sky blue
On a summer day.

Balcony scene. Serious, moderate contemplations.
For I am here now. And feeling one with everything.
Everything blue.
Ice cubes and great resignation. Acceptance.
I feel the flowers in the pots expressing their silent agreement.
This is how it should be.

Every moment wasted now has a chance to be redeemed.
Bubbles of finest blue.
Celestial order.
Harmonious blessings.
Too much, too little, too lovely.

Because this is me. This is where I belong.
In many hues of blue...
Melting...
