  1. Poem for M. NIDHAM

    The hidden eyes in flowers
    seduce the gates of heaven

    Birds pick up their scent
    distribute them in the faraway trees

    Umbrellas in the rain
    are they and weightless perfumes

    In the night fish glow
    to light the oceans

    They learned this trick
    from desert sand and roses

    They teach me also how to paint the horizon
    with all the colours of the hidden heart
