Poems

Throught the trees of Tamarit
have come the hounds of lead
waiting for the branches to fall,
waiting till they shatter themselves.

Tamarit has an apple tree
with an apple on it that sobs.
A nightingale gathers the sighs
and a pheasant leads them off through the dust.

But the branches are happiness,
the branches are like us.
They don't think of rain, they sleep,
as if they were trees, just like that.

Sitting, their knees in water,
two valleys awaited the Fall.
The twilight with elephantine step
leant against trunks and branches.

Through the trees of Tamarit
are many children with veiled faces
waiting for my branches to fall,
waiting till they shatter themselves.
Don't Exist Apr 2014
I saw the branches shadow
the branches that was blocking the harsh sun
I look down
people surrounding me seem to ignore the shadows
but I didn't
I kneel down to look closely
It shadow branches starts to move, i'm startled
It was only the breeze of the wind
There were less people now on the sidewalk
I sat down
A scene began to play on the floor
I seen a bird that was perching on the tree
I saw squirrels fighting for nuts
I saw a butterfly land on one of the branches
I even saw a lion
What?....

I immediately look up
It wasn't there, i was intensely relax
I started to feel the cold in the air
I pull my jacket closely around me
I finally look down at the sidewalk
the branches were gone
the show was over
it was night time
I got up from my spot
and placed a dollar on one of the branches
and as I began to leave I anticipated what the next show was going to be.
