Frankfurt, Germany: March 2017

late-afternoon light ~ when winter is almost spring ~ the idea of warmth

when Munich called me ~ I went again and again ~ to its white-blue skies

Frankfurt am Main: July 2008

standing on the bridge

watching houseboats floating by

the water is dead

Jena 1990

fiery windows

where young men now choose to live

no street lights either

Bavarian winter: January 1991

thick snow on the roof

it is warm in our attic

but your heart is cold

Lost friend

sipping cold white wine

snaking along the Danube

now you’re gone my friend
