Intertextures – Crossing Rivieras



it’s a hard switch
from listing a dumpster
of emotion to observing the
less visited bay of serenity
having very few words
at use for such new place
and fear of letting enthusiasm
out a kite flying high
people born unhappy
turn green under a dark
cloud if you let happiness
out but why changing them
yet I know some are here
now craving for news from
outer places words as rare
pearls bright near the heart

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely poem Anna. I love your style. Following Blaise Pascal who said that “All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”, I would say that the majority of people today have difficulty learning to “unplug”. The dependence on electronics is so great that people do not pay attention when they block walkways, doors, etc. because they are so busy checking their smartphones. I have gotten used to silence so much that I prefer listening to instrumental music at a very low level or I just simply enjoy silence. Warmest regards – Alina πŸ™‚


  2. Thank you for such a richly crafted poem. Beauty and silence, and your words are indeed “pearls bright” which you have brought closer to my heart. Really great! And thanks for taking time to read my poems…it is much appreciated!
