Image of the sky near Corfu Greece

I see you standing my faithful waiter.

My queen of the night.

Every night I expect you.

You remain loyal to me.

I see you shining in the already pale blue firmament.

You welcome the night when the sun fails.

Lonely and glistening, you look down on me.

I feel the loneliness of the night approaching,

but you enlighten my mind.

If the sun ever disappears, you too will disappear,

my dearest light.

Let the night come, then I can keep dreaming!

Ode to my dearest wife.

Corfu, August 31, 2021.

The character of the period in which we now live determine our future. The approaching summer will be a summer, which will look nothing like all the summers we have ever experienced.

The character in the current period will also be determined by the behaviour and attitude of people in…


Threaded Desire by Mark Pol

… is not equally clear to everyone. Even if we could see through the meaning of things, life does not get any easier. Sometimes I look at art with amazement. What’s the point of art? Why does man want to express himself in colors and form both in two and…


The future of energy, we should have started to think about it 40 to 50 years ago.

The power of the oil companies and the stupidity of our politicians cover it up and suppressed it.

Today we are thinking it over again and again, but still there is the same…

When the world comes to a standstill in you. Life fades away. You’re sinking into oblivion. The images are fading. The dreams disappear.

Planet Earth will continue to exist. She will make her circle around the sun until it is extinguished. Then all life is gone. Civilizations will have faded…


Forced silence … By Mark Pol

The messenger of bad news was always killed by the King. That’s the way it always was. It shouldn’t but the truth has always sparked fear. If you kill the messenger you will kill the truth, but the truth is always harsh and unpleasant. Truth has no feelings. Truth won’t…
