A Time Travel

by Debashish Haar

An hour for time travel:
Vermeer accepts
Bernard Shaw’s invitation,
schools of arts and linguistics meet.
Dali and Escher host
Columbus for a drink, a whole world’s
rediscovered, after centuries, in a bed.

At 5.30 am, he wakes in the sheet
that had rivers and streams.
The streams flow upstairs
into the terrace, and he swims.

He’s the only creator,
sipping the solar system in a cup.

The wind frees the sheets of dream
and collapses like powder in grass.
Pictures fade like rainbows
and splash their colors.

Wow, that is one wild poem, Yoli! I love the pairing with the Parkes picture. Who would you invite to a fantastic dinner party?

I think Shakespeare, James Joyce and Sylvia Plath would be fun.

Hi, this is Debashish, and I feel honored to see my poem on your blog, but I am not sure if I know you.

Yoli said...

I would have to invite Shaw and Wilde.

Debashish if that is indeed you, it is an honor that you are here. I am a big fan.

k we have two very different takes on Shaw. The man and his work are very familiar to me. I do appreciate your concern, I will make sure you come along for the dinner.
