“Excuse me…. Oh sorry…,please excuse me! Can you let me go?I’m in a hurry.” “Today, however I should find where he is going. At this time the streets are always crowded by hundreds of people. So he easily disappears among them.” I  was thinking while hardly trying to follow him, bumping into people. This is […]

Books, or the world I saw, real or utopian? Left me with a question, with that dubious action. Massive or micro, already a puzzle, I was in a quest, huzzle and buzzle. Opened the eyes in that mystic hole, With no identity and blank as gone. Eyes amazed, they asked me for my name, “I […]

Golden rays tinkle my face, as I take my usual walk, Around the fragrant garden, in the morning hours. The bees ,butterflies and birds hover gayly over, Flamboyant flowers, rapidly as Olympic sprinters. In a deadly silent corner of the noisy, moistly loan, Dozes off a messy posy of light purple spiky flowers. Dripple-drippy and […]
