group photo with fishermen

it’s christmas dad
lend me once more your hand to compare ourselves
among the living people i ever touched
only your hand was bigger

if you want to we can go to the seashore hand in hand
to leap wave after wave together
or you can take me to the puppet theater
where the orange tiger swallows pancakes
while we’re clapping along with our big hands

this year i didn’t grow home bread and
i didn’t burn candles
i simply crouched with half-opened eyes
leaning against high cushions
over a cross scratched with my nails on the bed sheets
lying in wait
fishing like you dad
sometimes hours other times days
go by without any catch
apart from your pale and slippery smile
in the last photograph

why on earth didn’t you put aside the fishing rod

NO, I did not go nuts!!
In my country there is the habit of caroling on the occasion of Christian holidays, I really don’t know what is customary in other countries, or how warm are your hearts around Christmas…

Therefore, overcoming my shame (because I don’t have musical aptitudes or special equipment or some sort of education of this kind) I took the decision to carol a song for you, the readers of this blog, whom I consider to be a kind of neighbors and friends.

In advance I sent you all my best wishes and be careful; listen to it only if you have an open heart to my disabilities and loneliness…This is closer to my real voice:

And a Romanian carol, but in another room, other echoes:

And a funny and weird fact: my youtube analytics show that I have over 2000 visits but only 10% men and 90% women! LOL, as they use to say on facebook.
