weeds- what a wrong word... arisen from our frustrations. This piece of land is not my garden, is theirs. They are simply plants that thwart my plans. I play God and I don't like it.

leaves (41)

I take a path untouched since Autumn, deep into the mountains, where Winter hides like a fugitive. I find its traces- a lost handkercheif, some rags of its sheets and then its mantle, unfolded on the road. It must be somewhere near here!

strange breathing-
the silence pierced
by a birdcall

It's almost morning and the sky seems a discoloured umbrella. My ugly, dirty, small town opens its many eyes, blinks and calmly smokes its first cigar.

leaves (11)

I sit, shovel in hand, hesitant as in front of a white page. The times when winter meant joy seem parts of an other's life. As snow has become a chore, I should start to shovel it but no, not this time. I'll put the shovel down and I'll make a snow angel, like the little girl in the old photo.
