California Notebooks, 2014

Standard

*

on borrowed dreams
he said we are made
with the same atoms
as the sun and the stars

that a small part of him
could have been a star
long ago now fallen
on this solid planet

yet not having
a light of its own
he was afraid he
may fly apart

anytime once
more into the
finest powder
a tear in my eyes

as I dive into
deep thoughts
he never ceases
to surprise me

  1. “We are stardust
    We are golden
    And we’ve got to get ourselves
    Back to the garden”
    –Joni Mitchell

    As always Anna, I love visiting your site.

    • Thank you Lance, love seeing you here, very often in the company of Joni… ;-) You make me feel ashamed of not knowing much at all about her work. Promise as I have a little window of time I’ll read her work. I did read though pretty much of all is there from Patty Smith :-) Cheers to you, Anna

  2. We truly loves someone when we know their vulnerabilities.

    (You left a few likes on my blog and it took me a while, but I’ve come to explore your work and it’s great. <3)
