the sun has coloured my petals in a summer color I was hoping to finish between the pages of a notebook in a bouquet on the fireplace but time has made my petals fade away the wind made them fall on the ground that I will feed and in the spring will come back
surprise a secret
through the half-open door and
run away quietly
on the corner of
my street spring explodes in front
of my amazed eyes
By pure chance, this morning, I came across an article in Newsroom (NZ) entitled: « Wanted: a politician withe the guts to halt a cultural scandal ». In this article we are told that after got rid of 60,000 books already, they will be sending 70,000 more books on October 12 to the Lions club (I would love to live in Wellington at the moment). We do something similar here at the Nelson library. Near the exit, there is always a bin containing old books that the library is happy to get rid of. The catch with the National library’s decision is that the Lions Club bin contains books by Marx, Mao, Shakespeare, Cervantes, Primo Levi, Virginia Woolf, etc. In fact, the National library intends to get rid of 625,000 books. Oh no ! wait! they are not going to get rid of the books, they are going to « rehome » them (silly me).
