Wishes

Poem By Stefan nnn

passing here or passing there
stopping silent, stand and stare
if life's riddle we could see
could we taste eternity?
but this world so semiotic
leaves me both bereft and melancholic
all I have are hollow wishes
so plodding on I do the dishes

that the stars fall from the heavens
and lie shattered and sparkling on the morning grass

to count syllabubbles, so

end in love requited?
How many the hands won,
with pretty words?

Adrift

storm soaked by salt water
on this ocean of sighs
I pitch and roll
helpless -
