Everday's Hurricane

In the Eye of the Hurricane

my thoughts swirl
like debris
in a hurricane

swift
unpredictable
destructive

hardly stoppable

shredded words
fragmented pictures
kaleidoscope of emotions
tessellated colours

information
impressions
a jigsaw
of my
inside and outside

I get a glimpse
of a thought
catch a character
lay hold on a syllable
grasp a word
put it on paper
write
write down
deep down
into
the eye
of the hurricane

 

small remark: as there is no good literal translation of "auf Papier bannen", the last verse is rewritten in English completely from scratch
