Vanishing Dreams


Hold on tight
Shed some light
Wet your apetite
Do not let them slip away
Or they start to lose their colour
day by day, year by year
Right into thin air

There you stand
You seem to have forgotten
Once when you were a little boy
Building castles of dreams with joy

There you now stand
You front, inspired by fustration
Surrounded by countless restrictions

Vanishing Dreams
Fading away quietly into empty streams

It is easy to give in without a bother
Lose your freedom in a common fashioned order
While your dreams vanish one after the other
Our sons and daughters
are still cradling them
Nurturing their stems
On their own conditions and terms

So hold on tight
Wet your apetite
Make your dreams come true
While there is still light

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
