Scattered Thoughts


Scattered Thoughts

To Wlodzimierz Szpinger


In the gap of an old floor

she found a picture.

On the easel she has set

not her memories.


probably a poet.


Pencil, paper,

scattered thoughts

that cannot be heard, but can be seen.

He thought about parting? Or about...

She lied.


She did not know what he was thinking,

she did not even know if it was...?

How to paint a poet?

How to paint not your thoughts?

Torn between poetry and drama. Likes to look into the clouds, but keeps both feet on the ground. Her heart is close to the thought of Schopenhauer: "Ordinary people merely think how they shall 'spend' their time; a man of talent tries to 'use' it".
