gray vienna

  • foto velaj

...for many days the sky above vienna was primal, gray.
fog, cold, and…gray rain.
i stood by the window and drew on top of the steamed up glass…
i remembered it was its birthday…i hadn’t wished it yet…
maybe because i was looking at the primal sky and listening to the gray rain…

...der himmel über wien war seit einigen tagen sehr primitiv, grau.
düster, kalt und...grauer regen.
ich stand vor dem beschlagenen fenster und zeichnete hinein...
plötzlich erinnerte ich mich, dass sie geburtstag hat...hatte vergessen zu gratulieren...
vielleicht weil ich den primitiven himmel sah, und den grauen regen hörte...

...kishte disa ditë që qielli mbi vjenë ishte shumë primitiv, gri.
mjegull, ftohtë, dhe...shi gri.
qëndroja përballë dritares dhe vizatoja mbi avullin në xham...
m'u kujtua që kishte ditëlindjen...s'e kisha uruar akoma...
ndoshta ngaqë shikoja qiellin primitiv dhe dëgjoja shiun
gri...
