Imago lacus

The picture above was taken by a dear friend, the American poet Debra Kang Dean (please do not use it without permission).

Poesiarekin topo egin nuenekoa

Eskalondoko tabernaren pare-parean
Arestiri buruzko hitzaldia bukatuta

Baionatarra hamaika atakan saiatua
eta Deustun euskal filologia eginda
Gasteizen masterra nekatzen zuen aingerua

poeta zaharra ausazko poeta berria
Lizardiren baratzean lan egiteagatik
gonbidatu nituen kopa ardo bat hartzera

baina gazteak ez zuen ezer edan nahi
“gidatu behar dut” desenkusatu zen
eta goiz samar alde egin zuten
                                                   elkarrekin.
