Alice Kriel

c + H2O = we

light dances on river,
a moving marvel
sun and water make rainbow,
a beautiful illusion
like our love:
moving from a distance
yet we never touch
deeper than the surface

Simple Wish Of A Complex Person

There are too many faceless screams
and many more nameless diseases
in this grey concrete world.

I get more headaches than I can count
and too many bad news reports to doubt

and the wind smells of lawns freshly mowed.
I want to drink water without thinking of death
and cross borders without worrying about guns.
Remind me of laughter and childhood,
kiss me and make me laugh.
