Proza u Poezija ta' l-istess awtur





Rocky, my pet, died peacefully in the back of my car on 7th August, 2000,at 10.43am, outside the vets, having waited for assistance for an hour, at the age of 12years. His ashes occupy the most prominent place in my study, a constant reminder of twelve years of unselfish devotion, love and affection the likes of which only a Dog can give to man.


Ghar Lapsi used to be my favourite oasis until I became a recluse.
