The empty room of silence where you used to weave flowers smells still sweet to me There are only two leaves left which are swinging in a dance on the edge of grey A little bunch of flowers in the green hands of the wood, and a ring of dew *** The dreaming city I slip in the awakening of an ordinary daybreak. Yet something is different, while the breath ropes around to find its way. As the sun climbs up in the air the water of the canals becomes more and more crystal. Until turquoise soundings show through, flashes and pearls which sparkle on the steps smoothed by silvery zephyrs. Maybe the city is still asleep, gliding me by mistake from its hands into the secret alley that leads to one of its many dreams. *** Instants: stems of fire and thorns sprouted deep inside soap bubbles with the wind all around When at the crossroads you know way leads up to way, clouds chasing one another
