Siesta: A Kasen Solo by Mandala
from: monday, 14 june 2010
to:  saturday, 24 july 2010

 
                                        mandala
1
     on the beach
     with moon and sixpence
     siesta

2
       the rain has come
       hitting tinplate roofs

3
     engine won't start
     but makes a click-noise
     an old bus

4
       utopia?
       it's a long way

5
     airport closed
     indefinitely
     volcanic ash

6
       that guy moved the mount
       while I dozed off


                                        mandala

7

     scratching
     the itchy part
     of the globe

8
       come on rosetta
       tell me your story

9
     in the stillness
     of an ancient eve
     shadows prevail

10
       for the Mausoleum
       flicker candle lights

11
     call for prayer
     who's chanting
     from the tower

12
       we turn back at the gate
       of an old vineyard

13
     left over
     some Trojan horses
     in the computer

14
       fractals and chaos
       it's a renga world

15
     power is
     best balanced in
     the golden ratio

16
       watching the hourglass
       sharpening the scythe

17
     fragrant blossoms
     of the golden bough
     you cut off

18
       put mummified memories
       in this time capsule


                              mandala

19

     bubbling the air of

     distant past
     polar ice melts

 

20

       what about a glass
       of blues
for weekend

21

     round about midnight

     at the Café Bohemia

     table reserved

22

       let me tell you a key
       to a successful divorce

23

     the seminar

     opens every summer

     in Aspen’s woods

24
       from a silk hat

       a pigeon flies away

25

     at the right time

     in the right place

     tip generously

26

       sunshine streams in through

       ocean view windows

27

     over the cape

     very often pop up

     Chinese subs

28
       show me whatever

       money can buy

29

     offer a bottle

     of vintage wine

     to the grave

 

30

       why did you Alex

       go beyond Khyber?


                              mandala

31
     Russia
’s winter

     turns many hopes

     into ice cubes

32

       green lights and blue skies

       roll up the hood now

33

     vamos

     the world’s longest

     straight highway

34

       too heavy to take off

       but too late to stop

35

     with a blackout

     the stage ends

     what’s next?

36

       see you another day

       come to another world

          ----This is the End of Siesta: a Kasen-----
