Goodbye Zara

GoodByeZara

“My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend stopped running today.”
― Richard Adams, Watership Down

Goodbye Zara,

wherever you may go next,

may you find and carry joy and happiness,

truthfulness and love…

may these words be your shadow,

may you be happy, content,

healthy, loved and playful,

wherever you may go now.

I am fortunate, I got to cross your path

only once,

last week.

I wish you all the very best,

and even more.

far beyond that.

Comedy Fuzz

“Bang!” Said the gun

The Story of an Evolution.

“Bang! Bang! Bang!” Waving a stick – gun

“You shot me down”, in slow motion

“Bang! Bang! Bang!”

I said: “I’m dead!”

And it makes you smile,

Although I can tell your head

Isn’t completely at rest,

As you give me a slightly worried look.

“Bang!”

A body hits the ground, somewhere.

Hung,

A body elevates itself

Leaving the shallow realm of the half-gods behind,

To enter the wild unknown.

Leaving the one-eyed and the blind

Retelling your story as if they knew

Why you let yourself drown,

In the lights calling you…

Candles, bare lightbulbs, flames, neon,

Sunlight, headlights, starlight, moonlight…

Full moon lit night.

And that’s the last thing you saw of this world.

That’s where your next chapter begins…
