Exhausted sunset: I have seen Reality

Quote by Otilia Nicolescu about poetry, shadow, smile, sky, reality, world

Exhausted sunset

I have seen Reality
trailing its changing shadow behind:
blue nebulae crouching in the corner of your eye
an exhausted sunset pinning down a patch of sky -
of course, I’m trying to explain all this to you,
especially the cat’s gracious movements
the stubborn goat unwilling to budge
the din of geese bursting out of the blue:

all’s ending up on my part in a smile -

it’s a mad world!
The angels have turned into soldiers
while I kept busy fitting tiny keys to my poems.
