He strolled.
He paced each day.

That Stalker!

Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

Is there a harbour

incoming shiploads 
more urgent handling required
I feel shorthanded

trapped by multitude
no signs signalize escapes
again tossed about 

too much and too big
my hands are tight by the mass 
no free space in sight

occupied by all
everything priority
puzzles of life reign

blocked views all around
visible through a bad loupe
distant crooked worlds

(c) Elly Wouterse

The Vital Holy Day

Getting ready for
Passover to shed us might
For joyous future

The significance 
Of God’s holiday is way
More vital than us

color awe
so crystal as to hear an

whiffed fragrance
a strangeness to scarcely taste
obscure scenes

light is sown
feel the warmth that follows miles
minds do smile


"An individual whose conscious awareness is such that a sound becomes fused with a sense of color and taste; for whom each fleeting impression engenders a vivid, inextinguishable image; for whom words have quite different meanings than they do for us—such a person cannot mature in the same way others do, nor will his inner world, his life history tend to be like others'."
