    Hi Tanja
    I really like your poetry…short and sweet- not many words but they convey much emotion…kind of reminds me of the spirit of haiku. Most of my poems are longer than yours but a Sufi poet named Rumi (1207-1273) inspired me to write a short one of my own.
    Rumi wrote:
    The minute I heard my first love story
    I started looking for you,
    not knowing how blind that was.
    Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
    They're in each other all along.
    and he also wrote:
    I am so small I can barely be seen.
    How can this great love be inside me?
    Look at your eyes. They are small,
    but they see enormous things.
    I wrote this poem and posted it on this web site under my nom de plume, Alan Strand:
    'A Dangerous But Very Short Liaison'
    A small kiss,
    And yet I reminisce
    About Love done,
    And dream wildly about
    What may have just begun.

    Keep up your wonderful art!

Pieces

There are pieces of us between pebbles
By that crashing, faraway sea
Where I spelled my love for you
Where you spilled your love for me

If you look hard between pebbles
By that crashing, faraway sea
Maybe you will see pieces
Of what once was everything
