Aurora Borealis
having a party

by DagEnDauw

Today I swept the sky
With a big bright broom
away all obstacles
 that could possibly loom

so blue, only blue was left
for the eye to see
Nothing at all between the sun
 the earth and me

While the guests were waiting for the day to pass

I locked up all clouds in a box of glass
After Boreas turned them into cubes of ice
I poured tinkling drinks
cooled by these frozen dice

Earth, winds, waters, fire, the blue moon and the golden sun
were waltzing with eachother all night long
until my sisters extinguished every star in the milky way
and I ended the party by starting a new day

Mijn bijdrage voor "schetsen op de minuut", van deze week

Paper Boats

by Rabindranath Tagore

Day by day I float my paper boats 
one by one down the running stream.
In bid black letters I write my name on them 
and the name of the village where I live.

I hope that someone in some strange land 
will find them and know who I am.
I load my little boats with shiuli flower from our garden, 
and hope that these blooms of the dawn 
will be carried safely to land in the night.

I launch my paper boats, 
look up into the sky and see the
little clouds setting thee white bulging sails.
I know not what playmate of mine in the sky 
sends them down the air to race with my boats!

When night comes I bury my face in my arms 
and dream that my paper boats float 
on and on under the midnight stars.
The fairies of sleep are sailing in them, 
and the lading ins their baskets full of dreams. 

Let there be light

More light(s) than one can bear...

Still need more light?

Lagen / Layers

Glass reveils many layers
One can
 see landscapes or interiors through it
 reflections in it
dust and scratches on it
 sharper with it
or just hide behind it

A short story

Indian Summer
English translation :

Look this little thing spinning around
not aware of anything
except for her task
of weaving a web 
to survive.

The cat catches our eye
she bows for goodbye
and what shall this one catch?
What she 's wishing for?

Along the golden road
the spider withdraws her web
And I?
I catched 
for you
that moment.
