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...

Northern Star

Stella Polaris.
Constant light. Showing North.
Never failing.
Guiding light for lost souls.
Always there in the night sky.
For centuries.


And when the song strikes a chord in the heart
I’ll be there
And when the music becomes too much to bear
And your heart wants to return home
A light will show you the way.

The Star of the North.
It knows all your memories
All your troubles and sorrows
Drowned in the seven seas
It knows your joy and your songs
And what makes your soul fly.

And when you see the table set for guests
And the familiar faces waiting for your return
You know, that’s the end of the road
This is where you put the suitcase down and
Where you belong.

In the arms of the loved ones.
Celebrating the return.
Under the faithful light
Of the northern star.

One

The night sky is lit up with stars.
The air kindled by sparks of
Unspoken emotions.
The eyes like searchlights
With the need to explore
To know more...

The quiet vastness of the Universe.
All the forces conspire
There's always something higher
Deeper than the paralyzing fear
Of desire and intent
To be good and do good.
Know love..

Love is everywhere.
Behind the mountain.
Beneath the bridge.
Beyond the sea.
Between the lips.
Borrowing heartbeats
And notes from harmonies.
Celestial harmonies for all
When the walls fall...

It's in the stars above
In the constant reassurance of the night.
One certainty
One victory
One Love.
