MY NEW POEM TODAY by SFC TUESDAY 07- 07-2020


today i do not translate
nor do i evaluate

i don't yet give lectures
nor do i draw textures

i am only completing
the poems of the oldest dating

how far can i go
if i don't know

how far i could go
in this greatest void,
to me bestowed?

the greatest void
write words emproyed
as many as i wish
for readers, friends and poets to relish

free from formal
in all ordinary normal

i am only completing
the poems of the oldest dating

i solemnly carry them in my heart,
constantly,
i read them time and again,
not in vain

short words of fluence
in deep youth innocence

those times don't come back,
although i still own their track

can i talk about memories?
do you think they only consist of luxuries?

Dear friends
it comprehends

true love,
loyal weddings best friendships,
various tragedies, only minor, i bet

a really rich life
with all kinds of strife,
touched by above
pointing to God's endless love

i have gone as far
as the scintillating star,
is following me,
that's how far i have gone into my memory

the greatest void
to me bestowed

i have used truly economic
as poetic epic

i need much space
on this trace,
not that epic
i am just claustrophobic....
(claustrophoby= afraid being in small rooms)
