gone with the wind

totally forgetting a poem
that had flitted into my mind
just five minutes ago
by the time the line cleared
to this blog
gone with the wind!



fixing myself in time and space
on parking the car in the office parking space
i found the following parameters:
2:52 pm
15560 km
nearly five litres of petrol in the tank
a story waiting to be written.

deep in the night

deep in the night
i sat at the computer watching
the modem blink,
without connecting.

i had no agenda,
nowhere to reach,
i watched
the blink of the moment
on the modem,
the long pauses in between,
the sudden jumping into blinks
over clouds and dreams and pastures wide,
with bleating sheep.
