Irene Beddies

Subdued Passion

Subdued Passion

 She passed the trunks - now grey and silent -
of trees that once gave shelter on a summer day
when in the prime of love they went this way
and  sudden rain under these trees them led.
 The trees still were the same - but different
without the foliage that had formed the roof.
Instead a golden carpet at their roots gave proof
of changing seasons and of times long dead.
 Passing the trunks she did not hesitate,
her paces even and her look unbent,
untouched her mind about that past event
when she was following the well known lane
 in thoughts of daily tasks, her feelings straight.
Only a faint remembrance told her of joy,
which changing times for long could not destroy,
flickering through her body - to remain.

In fernen Ländern begegnen dem Leser Paschas und Maharadschas. Ein Rabe wird sogar zum Rockstar.
Auch der Weihnachtsmann darf in dieser Gesellschaft nicht fehlen.

Mit einer Portion Ironie, aber auch mit Mitgefühl für die Unglücklichen, Verzauberten wird erzählt.
