A German poet and photographer friend, Ines Langs, has a new poetry book. The book is about 50% German and 50% English. Here are two of her English poems to tantalize you.
Oh what a torture love can be
taken and given
by all the spirits
of heaven and hell
choking on a yell
laughing and crying
living and dying
in sweet pain and ecstasy
Copyright Ines Langs, March 29, 2007
I only need a soft breeze to lift me up into the skies
Softly I came down to rest,
lying still now for a while.
When the sun is turning West,
you can see me softly smile.
Morning sun will wake me up
with his tender loving kiss.
And a breeze will lift me up,
lets me fly again in bliss.
