In a still life’s jurisdiction I discovered my benediction
Where dreams connect for their subsistence with an unreal existence
Where love is not left to roam, but grows towards its home
I ask you, my invisible friend, who serve me to spiritual ends
Bring me back to the location of my soul’s creation.
(Translated from Dutch from my book: Engel uit de voorstad).
