"Three brief verses
for the third millennium"

a poem about the changing times
by Stefan Lewis-Fish

E-mail to Stefan Lewis-Fish




The world revolves around the sun
The night retreats, the dawn awakes
Kiribati hails the new millennium
Prepares canvas for dreams or nightmares

Poet's fate is to comment in gibberish
Leaving to others a de-cyphering job
For reflection's insights leave autonomous artworks
Internal gymnastics in Pandora's box

Does hope lie before us in past times present
Or is it present in presently future unwritten?
Certainty lies in uncertain cries...
Nihil desperandum... millennium
