and the rest is your imagination

Forward

So here I am.
I somersaulted all the way
to this threshold and now
I stall the further going,
too afraid of what‘s ahead.
Because here is
where the ending alters
into new beginnings –
Before satiety becomes hunger.
Before fatigue becomes elation.
Before placidity becomes hysterics.
Before routine becomes uncertainty.
Before normalcy becomes the extreme.
Before anticipation becomes concern.
Before welcome becomes farewell.

But the cavity slowly fades
and moves me outward,
where today turns into tomorrow
and farewell into welcome.
I confide to the motion.


About The Most Beautiful Hours

The Most Beautiful Hours combines poems that are my mementos of an extraordinary year. Because 2020 was the year of trials and errors. Of goodbyes, of new beginnings, of new thoughts and plans. Almost a new epoch of enlightenment. What was imposed on us as a restriction offered opportunities for deepening or even dissolving relationships, for reflection and confrontation with ourselves, with our fears, our desires. And it also allowed for our reinvention.
