still moving

with a sudden flash the artist’s life

had changed

besides the general showdown by

technocrats and rulers of public life

the artist had to re-establish his groove

of creative moods

work at it steadily day for day.

there’s no problem working away

in solitude

yet meet your mate now and then

or perhaps a good friend

a potential soulmate

visit exhibitions of art

let art-history scroll past your eyes.

your assembly of experiences

hover like a blue mountain

in the mental landscapes

your mind will assist/ but you/

dear artist have to dig restlessly

and mine it.

for treasures will come to light

you’ve forgotten about: romance


eros with his never tiring arching

to get you still moving.
