Years later

then I see your eyes

finding mine across the room

how could I forget?

you open your mind

invite me to disappear

in the labyrinth

John’s refrain (IV out of V)

we might imagine

a world without fear or lies

a world that’s at peace

Early autumn in Kalmar, Sweden: September 2016

an autumn whisper

in sunshine on a cool breeze

the first leaves come down

here where seasons meet

it is neither hot or cold

beautifully warm

words flow easily

poetry flies from my hand

melodies in thought

Southern nights

a song in the night

here under the southern cross

listen silently
