Rookie (Almaty, Kazakhstan)

Seagulls over Rome...


Question:
Would you
mind to die young?

Break your bones
and be pierced
by the gargoyles
of Notre Dame de Paris?

Or tread
into nothingness
from Castel Sant'angelo
same place where
Saint Michael
brandish his sword?

Or maybe
you prefer much
to enter
Rodin's
Gates of Hell?

Look carefully -
simple grass grows
through thick
medieval rocks
and darkness
appears at noontime...

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
