Reading Circle

We just don’t understand each other

Me and my friends

Reading books together

Still not together

We read the same book

Still not the same book

Talking about the book

Still we don’t understand

Each other

Surface and depths

Structure and details

On Writing Poems

For many people writing can be a very difficult task. At the moment I write and publish a lot of poems. There are so many thoughts and ideas that have stayed inside my mind until now. Where I live we have one of these long and enduring winter.

The days are short and the nights up to 18 hours long. That gives a lot of time to write or waste watching TV. I write in the modernist tradition mostly, that means not much rime but a reflection on how every word is used to construct meaning, sentences etc.

But reading and writing poetry takes from many different tradition. From Ulysses to Bukowski. I have the greatest admiration for anyone trying to write anything!

To all my readers here on WordPress I am so grateful for you reading my poems!

Lonely Running Time

Lonely forever and ever

That is my nature

All those people passing by

Without me knowing why

All those important things

That has to be done

Without any reason why

There is a stream in time

That everything has to be done

Now, or just before now

Run,run and run

Your life will not be fun

Nothing needs to be done

It is just an illusion of our

Time

Submitting Myself

Calm and imbalance

Keeping the balance

Means losing my self

But living in peace

Following her every whim

Keeping her comfort

While slowly losing my will

Like a spiders web surrounding me

Suffocating everything around her
