Sonnete number 25

The dog barked at the back yard, while the eagle flew after the dark. And I....

When the box was opened, the fog disappeared. Alienation of the stone

I put a spell on you

Excused me, Sir!

The Dust




in collaboration with Julie Jaffrennou (France)



Some are trapped in the air
Some are in the water
We are stucked here,
in our boundaries of being to be
Steps blow the dust
Over the border of the past
We just go on forwards,
carrying the memories
The action seduces reaction.
The ideas are transformed into the pictures of reality.
The reality worlds are translated into the abstract world.
The situation is supported by the moving image of daily and the lights of dreams.
