Pub

Relaxing

atmosphere

of gentle

melodies

in an empty pub

gradually

changing

by guests

that stream in

like noisy insects.

Voices mix up

with music,

will soon drown out

an accordion’s tune.

 

Candle light

not intimate enough

to fade away

pale daylight

oozing through

high windows.

But shadows creep

out from corners

and flow timeless

slowly into the room

together with
candle light

in crystal screens.

Pub

Entspannte
Atmosphäre
gedämpfter
Melodien
in einem
leeren Pub,
sich allmählich
wandelnd
durch Gäste,
die wie
summende
Insekten
herein
schwirren.
Stimmen
mischen sich
mit Musik,
übertönen bald
Akkordeonspiel.

Kerzenschein,
nicht hell genug
um Tageslicht
auszusparen,
das durch
hohe Fenster
sickert.
Schatten aber
kriechen aus
Winkeln und
verfließen
allmählich
zeitlos im Raum
mit Kerzenlicht
zu kristallenen
Szenen.
