Guillermo Veloso

Rookie - 224 Points (September 25 1962 / New York City)

Somewhere Far Away

Somewhere an ocean spreads on a sleeping beach
Somewhere a wave falls red with krill
Somewhere a blue whale leaps in scaffold breach
Somewhere a tern paints an arctic sky
Somewhere the day is quiet, golden and still
Somewhere a man faces his death and asks why
Somewhere a pie cools just baked on a wooden sill

    Somewhere a man faces his death
    And somewhere a pie cools on a wooden sill

    those last two lines have something special to them, a strange sort of parallel that makes you see... (Report) Reply
