On the ‘Sivenston’ Park
In ‘Sivenston’ Park is quiet,
Lost benches in a heretic time.
A frozen lake and forgotten wings
Of white swans dissolved in migration.
On ‘Sivenston’ park is cold,
wind is blowing.
A snow that feels with crystallised snow flocks,
Steps are knocking, slow motions
Flip flaps of enlarged shadows.
‘Sivenston’ park, a broken vision,
Worlds are crossed,
Awaiting for water flows,
Shapes of symbols painted on lips
Mirages and dreams of broken memories.
“Sivenston’ Park an infinite vision
a thrill of fates.
Among clouds and nights an icy longing,
Sleeps below the forest naked and alone.
