and the rest is your imagination

Playing with the Fire

Indeed,
if one day we succumb
to the view of these fools
under occupation of outrage
their rebellion will soon turn
into systematic oppression.
And yet it’d be the fools
who used the law
to annul it blindly.
They sparked the fire
in which they‘d burned.
Their blaze shall warm my hands
on the darkest days.


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.

Because writing helps us to process experiences and to become more aware of ourselves and our environment.
