Emmanuel George Cefai

(12th March 1955 / Victoria, Gozo)

Night and heavens

Night and heavens
blood and soil
mixtures nocturnal
and mists abound
above and all around

there is a water
in the night
then I found not
stream nor fount
no other source:
the water stopped
my patience
and I was rewarded.

night and heavens
blood and soil
mixtures nocturnal
and mists abound
above and all around

    This is sheer verbal magic but it derives from the alchemy of nature and that mixture of elements constantly

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
