Die Augen der Nacht, The Eyes of the Night, Los Ojos de la Noche

Vor den Augen der Nacht
Verschwimmt die Einsamkeit
So ganz tränenlos


The  loneliness blurrs
In front of the eyes of the night
Completely without tears


Antes de los ojos de la noche 
Se desvanesce la soledad
Así sin lágrimas

    You always seem to paint pictures with words that touch readers' hearts, Gert. This is such a vivid description of depression. Well done, my friend. Love, Carolyn

    These are beautiful Gert. Ich lebe in Irland und in Trier. Mein Ehemann ist in der Europäischen Kommission. Er arbeitet im Luxemburg Büro aber Reist durch Europa wöchentlich. Wir haben für 16 Jahre in Holland und 2 Jahre in Belgien gelebt. Ich reise zu Trier im April, wenn das Wetter wärmer ist. Mein Ehemann kommt nach Hause alle zwei Wochen aber Leben ist gut. E

    Yes, Gert, the quail haiku is a true story. I went outside after the storm to find a baby quail had gotten left behind by its mom. They march through our streets ike little ducks behind their moms. It struck me as really sad that his mom did not come back for him. But maybe they just knew instinctually that he would not last. I didn't know what to do for him he was so close to death and when I went back moments later, he had died. Luv, Andrea
