Fernweh, Poetry and Wish for the World in 2020


Fernweh

(excerpt)

cinque-terra-4312591_1280 (1).jpg

there exists a place
where the streets are narrow
cobbled and lined with trees
gluttonous potted plants
petals, leaves, and berries
over-flow and cascade
to the stones below

there exists a place
where cars have been banished
to the nether regions
of the upper crust
pedestrians hold sway
passing bikes pay homage
with a ring-a-ting-ting
but keep safely to the left

there is no
rush hour mournings

... a place there exists a placewhere fruit trees are abundantnourishment and nurture is freehomes are well-keptand there is one for everyone
this place where laws are passéall-the-rage done away withburied and entombed ...

a place where
the only rule submitted to
is the graceful sovereignty
of compassion, kindness, and care
