Tres Hombres

The Soul of the Earth (Sandra Reinhold)

The sun rises

And lets a billion orange-golden loops loose 

To chase a billion black circles 


A soft breeze is slithering 

Over the mercury glittering 

And Venus twinkles from above


Oh look: a rainbow, double, over there (where we just were)

A nice couple: sun and clouds 

Their raindrops drying on the shrouds


A field of turquoise awaits a group of dolphins 

To play within 

Splashing the waves with their fins 


Black mountains move quietly but steadily 

Tell their story of origin to each other and don't bother 

About the small boat in their middle, listening


Tiny sprinkles of lightening amidst the black 

Attract the eyes

Like the female firefly the male 

After a while each of them dies 


A famous brigantine glitter

Through silverish silk 

With faint nipples

Like a thousand shivering nipples 


On gravellike gray white horses are racing 

Each other again 

While we are bracing 

The yards to a fan


A street of moonlight 

Waits to be chosen as the night path 

The stars shine bright 

And like to guide us well 


Then the swell:

Green-gray-blue, in sets of seven 

A sea gull in the sky 

A taste of heaven 


Seldom you see:

Blue, as you would expect it to be 

With clear edges 

Like in land people sketches
