Ziezo, mijn bijdrage voor "Schetsen op de minuut" is sedert zaterdag gepost.
Je vindt haar terug op mijn Lanterfanterblog maar ook in een link onder de opdracht van deze week.
En kijk, wat me toevallig al varend op het web tegemoet dobberde?
by Rabindranath Tagore
Day by day I float my paper boats
one by one down the running stream.
In big black letters I write my name on them
and the name of the village where I live.
I hope that someone in some strange land
will find them and know who I am.
I load my little boats with shiuli flower from our garden,
and hope that these blooms of the dawn
will be carried safely to land in the night.
I launch my paper boats,
look up into the sky and see the
little clouds setting their white bulging sails.
I know not what playmate of mine in the sky
sends them down the air to race with my boats!
When night comes I bury my face in my arms
and dream that my paper boats float
on and on under the midnight stars.
The fairies of sleep are sailing in them,
and the lading is their baskets full of dreams.
