And They Spread Their Wings


In the crimson sky
I see a flock of white birds
Spreading their wings east
I am here, alone, wishing
They will sing for me again

walking together
in the ebb of time, we pause
strengthening loose ends

when leaves start to fall
and you hide among the wind
it isn't fair play

Another Rainy Day


Another rainy day
hot coffee on the tray
the aroma fills up the cold air
shooing away the grey

I smile just like on other days
reminiscing the sweet  memories
sharing coffee and butter cookies
as if there was no yesterday

Now, I sip slowly the coffee
and take a bite of the cookie
alone am I, or is it only me
No, I still have the coffee

And I start to sing softly...

"Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day.
Rain, rain, go away,
Let the sun reveals its rays."
