In de Duisternis ( w/Translation)

In de duisternis
verkleuren herinneringen
naar middernachtblauw,

alle onvervulde wensen
met het sterrenstof,

maanlicht in de scherven
van onbereikbare dromen,

in de duisternis
vervagen grenzen
tussen wat was, wat is.

In the darkness,
memories discolour
into midnight blue,

all unfulfilled wishes
with the stardust,

moonlight in the shards
of impossible dreams,

in the darkness,
boundaries fade
between what was, what is

  3. Francina, How wonderful to read your new poem! It has a haunting quality to it, as though all is too much and therefore starts to fade as it is then easier to deal with… then the last line is so powerful!

    1. Thank you, Christy, for your much appreciated comment! I’m happy to know that the essence of the poem did not got lost with the translation πŸ™‚

  4. Donkere gedachten

    de kans is helemaal niet verwaarloosbaar klein
    dat gewone mensen
    door hun andere wensen
    voor anderen de bron van diepe duisternis zijn

    Een prachtig gedicht, Francina!

    1. Dank je wel, Lenjef, Inderdaad , die kans is ook niet verwaarloosbaar klein, dat heb je weer raak omschreven en samengevat in jouw prachtige gedicht. Dank je.
