Dreams on a wall

"And then the wall rose,
Rose slowly,
Slowly,
Between me and my dream.
Rose slowly, slowly,
Dimming,
Hiding,
The light of my dream.
Rose until it touched the sky,
The wall."

(J.M. Langston Hughes in As I grew older)
Amay-Ombret (B)

We met at the old factory wall


“challenge:
called out to play …
called out to play …

response:
their friendship
does not all please
their fathers”

The creation of a wall


“When the creation was new
and all the stars shone in their first splendour,
the gods held their assembly in the sky and sang
‘Oh, the picture of perfection! the joy unalloyed!'”

(Rabindranath Tagore in Gitanjali no. 78)

Colourful are the memories


“There are
No clocks on the wall,
And no time
No shadows that move …”

(Langston Hughes in Tearless)

And all gates and walls are closed
because business has been shut down
