When You Show Up


You show up
it unfreezes the sun
seagulls unwrap wings on the ocean bank.
Fragrance thickens on the grassland.
I wait for you on silver sand.

You show up
the moon permeates in my eyes
the way innocence softens the face of a child.
My desire and my lust bite into my bones.
I dare to be a wayfarer again out of my cocoon.

You show up
cloud and rain as one fall over the terrain.
it is all open horizon
there it rains dense, my sole existence is soaked.
My future, my worries; I care not to behold.

The world is growing old
it's banal, it's dreamless everywhere.
Who cares?
I want to wink at death, sorrows and pain
and feel young with you yet again.
