replacing alcohol
with camomile tea
this daily grapple …
      a latter-day Sisyphus
      with an epic boulder

  the first daffodils
at the flower stalls
tightly closed
      the many promises
      I've made to myself

    shards of light
through a tessellation
of leaves –
pieces of a puzzle
my hands can’t grasp

my fingers
but I can still
touch the stars
with my eyes

  vast is the night
under twinkling stars
without you
love is untouchable
like the tears of the moon

space D.V.Rozic - Croatia

twinkling like stars
I return
to explore my mind …
so many thoughts unvoiced
