Beyond clouds is my love

I spent a fortune today
to hide from the world
and escape

train to train

Tracks are never enough
to lengthen a day
made of daydreams
of you

Recklessly…buoyant
and melting
Bending even
Metal

wires accelerating
because of this heat
of a mind
that I want to brutally
Tease

Copying you over
sometimes
But only on me

to see whether
after all
Still
…?

For the movie I say
which I saw what I have seen once again
yesterday

once which was
on a stage of dreams of others’
after midnights
in a street

stage changing
seer
staying

Already
Crossing bridges
Connecting flat lands
A play of green
For the play
but
This one is different I say

A
Movie where the half moon
would love to take a part in

Haha and
So I could think
think of you again while
The moon adorns my sky
Like this half
from today

While I am thinking of you
While I say:

Only

only
one more time
Secretly
Alone

One more time

See
If you were with me
It wouldn’t be such a luxury
as it is now
On my own
In this dream
of a dream
alone

See it’s for the movie
I say

I say
then slip again
Willingly
contract
to embody
my
Role

Again

and
Seeing these clouds now
In the shape of all lovers

That has become for you

I think they can see
See me too
While I think
Think of you

because I shine
Shine then
Same as you
And so they can see
See me
through
Through
the transparent windows
behind
which I hide and write

and trees
At every station that we stop
hear
Hear me

and you

You
Know

Like the skies of all parks
Living their blues
in pristine waters only

A rain droplet is my love
Fragile but
intact on a surface that holds it
for a moment
just in its magnificent form
and as temporary
as my own

Yes
A rain droplet is my love
in which I have hidden
you today like a wish

Knowing
Its true nature

Shapeless
Placeless
Timeless

For the play

is today

Shining
A rainbow above
Through
that droplet
upside down
Beyond clouds
Beyond clouds
rhymes
a love poem
to mine

My first artichoke dish

Today I came across two charming artichokes at the Saturday market
I always thought these are difficult to prepare when unpeeled but…
The result was yummy thanks to mom’s quick recipe:

Slice off the outer and inner petals
Peel the sides like an apple
You can remove the fuzzy hair like middle with the help of a spoon
Give it a rinse and rub the whole heart with a lemon (to avoid color change)
Place the hearts in a pan
Add onions, salt, some sugar, water and olive oil
Cook for 25 to 45 minutes depending on the size
You can decorate with peas and carrots if you like
I like eating these cold . Often artichokes decorate Turkish meze tables as a cold meze.

​Enjoy 🙂

You can also eat the base of the petals , the crispy white part like a delicacy to gnaw on 😀
