That petal which danced in the wind – MD

To me thee wast that petal, which danced in the wind. ‬ Singled out & transfixed, at unique lines embedded in thy velvet texture, as thee swayed to the rhythm of nature, wast thee truly, destined to cross mine path in a fleeting manner?   Reflection of your sparkle in the sunlight, Shimmering your shades…… Continue reading That petal which danced in the wind – MD

Alexander Pushkin – A Nightingale and a Rose

A Nightingale and a Rose   In gardens’ muteness, in spring, in the nights’ mist, Over a rose sings the nightingale of East.

Come to…… Continue reading Alexander Pushkin – A Nightingale and a Rose

Wrapped up in yourself like a spool, Trawling your dark as owls do. Mute as a turnip from the Fourth Of July to All Fools’ Day, O high-riser, my little loaf. Vague as…… Continue reading Sylvia Plath – You’re

There’s many interpretations and its open to a lot of views. I feel that this is when life comes to an end. The word “Death” depicts that. Words…… Continue reading Gerrit Achterberg
