Nacht - Night - Noche


Im Schweigen verborgen,
die Nacht in Einsamkeit.
Ein fernes Licht 
wandert langsam,
verliert sich im Meer der Sterne
wie ein Sankorn am Strand.
Wiederkehrende Träume
ziehen ins Endlose,
dann wieder Stille.
Gedanken wandern unruhig
in eine andere Zeit


Hidden in silence,
night in solitude.
A distant light
moves slowly,
lost in the sea of stars,
like a grain of sand
on the beach
Recurring dreams
move ad infinitum,
then again.silence. 
Thoughts wander restlessly
towards a different time


Escondido en silencio,
noche de soledad.
Una luz en la distancia
mueve lentamente,
perdido en el mar de estrellas,
como un grano de arena
en la playa.
Los sueños recurrentes
mueven hasta el infinito,
después nuevamente silencio.
Pensamientos vagan sin descanso
hacia un tiempo diferente

    Hi John, thank you for your friendly comment, which I appreciate! I am sorry that I didn't post any new poem for quite some time, but I had completed a poetry book "Daydreams" with love poems which was just recently printed and still working on another one. But my problems with both hands and arms continue. All the best and take care...Gert

    Gert~ How in the W_O_R_L_D are U? I was just thinking about how much I have missed your presence here on the Soup and how I hope you are 100 % healed. This NIGHT you write of is filled with splendor....I love the recurring dreams that move on forever and your hint of Latin in there..and then the star that is like a grain of sand on the beach...ohhh, great metaphors..much appreciated this visual and my very first read of Christmas morn! May u have a fabulous Christmas and an even better New Year, Gert. Gwendolen
