Somebody asked to create a poet for an organisation. I agreed without any hesitation. It had to be about nature. So the subject feels ‘close to home’, because that’s what I did before. ‘It has to be a new one’, she said. Well….. that’s more complex, because I cannot organise poetry on command.
As a matter of fact nature has to catch me. Today I saw a bush with red berries. And immediately I started my writing in Dutch (sorry)
Vandaag zag ik in rood en groen
een wereld vol van zomer
een belofte, die leek als toen
toen jij keek, gelijk een dromer
het bracht de eerste zoen
