Cosmic Eyes

a photo and graphic poem by Dan Mitrut


1.

my sledge
less one pegasus

my thoughts out of reign
freezing on a planet
liable to urania

2.

if the colors would die,
could the planets' eyes
cry again?


3.

children of the earth
rolling embers balls
on sleeping velvet sceneries

the conjunction's eyes
shedding tears...
