736 | Old Bazar (Skopje) – Germain Droogenbroodt, Belgium

tekening van ithaca 736

Painting by Satish Gupta


How peaceful this evening
that slows down even
the shadows of the night

as clear as the water
of this fountain
which bubbles up and flows

bubbles up and flows

as if every drop
were the same water

not the continual repetition
of memory.

Germain Droogenbroodt
