YURI DURAAN

Street Cafe

I sit in silence...
the world around me
alive with people
hurrying here and there
round and round
chasing their own tails

the earth turns...
spinning around the empty
desires of people
and they rush on, regardless
here and there
round and round
... the earth sighs

and I sit in silence...
because I have you.

    Sometimes... silence is the earth spinning! Beautiful!
