Let your words be like a wild flower,

A smile of azure

With a tiny mouth of gold,

In the naked sunshine of a desert,

As blissful as the kiss of a mother

On the forehead of a smiling child.


When you talk of life,

It seems as if on the road

We are confronted with a rock,

Unsightly and huge,

Happened to be there

For no known reason,

Unyielding to all solutions.


Let your words fly,

Lightly in the sun,

Like butterflies.


London, 1 April 2004
