Red book

Autumn Madeleine,
The mystique today has been,
A gathering of souls
Amidst many bowls.
A soup party it was
with rightful classic cause....
Of autumnal climes
And colder wintry times.

Comfy food and comfy beer,
In autumnal atmosphere
I'm glad I've resumed this book
So glad to have taken a look
Into this magic phase
Of long forgotten days.


Log entry: 5th nov 2011. Autumn Madeleine, Toronto

O how lovely to beget a note
in the middle of a frazzled day
as I sit blurry eyed before my screen
Not sure of what to say

Surrounded by official things
meetings, mails, and phones that ring
Lots of things to do as such
But nothing that amounts to much

So its quite nice to switch off a bit
Take a deep breath and sit
to write a little verse or two
To communicate my point of view
Which in particular
is nothing too curricular
But means to underline
My scarce respect for time.

On that note, I must slip back
Into my frazzled day
I plan not to work at all
And see if they still pay.

Harper Birthday 2011

Dearest Harper

It is the 13th of September
And it's not that I didn't remember...
But excuses I can't make
So the reasons I shan't fake!

Happy birthday my dearest friend
Welcome thirty six from 'round the bend
Hasten it with open arms
Put aside your daily qualms

Another year for you to greet
Full of magic, raw and sweet
May it ply you with such affairs
That disperse your worldly cares

May it bring you sunny days anew
May wintery ones be rare and few
I wish for you a noodle soup
And an enchanted cantaloupe
A journey on a flying spoon
To the craters of the fullest moon
Travels to the strangest lands
Where stories hide in grains of sand

I raise a toast
A merry brew
of joy
of peace
of love
to you..

Happy Birthday
