Blues and Bells

 

 

bluebells!

and yet no tinkling

in the breeze

 

 

 

 

this fragile beauty

holding such power over

imagination

 

 

 

 

I, like the bees

can hear the bluebells calling

alas they call not for me

The Rising

 

only mosquitos

rise with me today-

all that is left

Colours

 

under the rainbow

multi-coloured shadows

white is the hottest

leaving all behind

except the footprints following me

Sarajevo

this cold night

the rain that falls is made of glass

crashing to the ground

no simple drops but jagged edges

and the leftover people

with emotional shrapnel in their eyes

watch as Miss Sarajevo waves

and her brave smile

among the fallen broken

jagged splinters

 

Sarajevo was always difficult to describe under the siege, difficult to get to, difficult to leave, In reality it was easy, because it was much, much more difficult if you lived there, and Sarajevo was your home. But it was difficult to visit, too, in different ways.

 

Part of "Winner Takes Nothing" over on the right, takes place around Sarajevo. It is free, at Kobo Books and Smashwords. Read it. I still don't know if it was difficult or easy describing Sarajevo. You will.

 

this cold night

in the silence before the mortar rain

she catches my eye

 

In memorium: 

 

Bosko and Admira

 

Two young lovers who won when they lost -

and dared to dream.
