I would have robbed you
blind, my own eyes
with a film of breath,
itâ€™s sticking to the eyelash,
tries its best to leave,
to jump across and through
thick layers of the atmosphere,
reach in between of space
and moment, stretch itself
five-fold like gravity, and
reconcile meaning â€” to
what it is but not expected,
But now- you are, you are
aware, like silk drops to the floor
with the lightest breeze
that leans into your face and roots
of thinning hair â€” it is
the longest journey.

How are things in Hamburg lately? Back in '78-'79 my native German Language teacher once told us that we simply must visit Hamburg sometime. I haven't made it yet and it's getting harder to travel abroad, but one never knows? I wrote one poem where I used some of what little German I could muster. I don't think it's in my collection here but I will try to rectify that soon.
Thanks for commenting on one of my poems.
