Prague is for the Intellectuals

I wrote a poem
Dedicated to the old and new versions of me.
For I was young, headstrong and wild.
A bit more composed and sagacious now.
I got friends, made a few foes.
Witnessed humanity at its high and low.
Too belligerent to made peace with the world.
Wouldn't change a thing though.

I traveled to Prague,
where intellectuals and artists congregate.
Finding peace in chaos and solidarity.
Collecting knowledge in castles ruins and on St. Charles Bridge.
Spring scene filled with Kafka's melancholia and Mucha's elegance.
The ancient spirits they said: sic transit gloria mundi,
Yet I don't see that happening here in Czechia.

Yule in Würzburg.

The European continent renders a whole new scene for me,
Unlike anything else, straight out of a quixotic fairytale.
Perpetually frozen in time and has an everlasting, staggering glow.
It is cold here in Bavaria region,
Crystal frosting on pines and the spine-chilling wind had me infatuated.
Not a lot of people roaming the street on Christmas day.
The Residenz Palace was old, ostentatious and seemingly covered in gold,
 I felt the freezing breeze on the medieval Old Main Bridge,
As I pass through the bountiful baroque and rococo architectures,
and heard the Chruch bell reverberates through the town,
somehow an epiphany strikes, and  I knew it was gonna be one wondrous holiday.
