"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry



essential readings flow over the sky
in scattered light feathers of transparency,
souls of angels dancing in abstract patterns of joy,
leaving behind the dull grey led of stormy clouds.

take the sun for a heart
to fill you with the rhythm of light,
overflowing the limits of your human syncope
and the chasms of your mind.

I am there, dissolving in the blue,
setting and rising, silent ray following the sempiternal shine,
eroding heart growing again to be human
remembering that I was once meant to be born free.

  1. Erdentbunden steigt ins lichte
    Himmelreich der Rauch,
    Uferlos dramatische Geschichte
    spielt ein Hauch.

    In Sekunden blickentschwunden,
    Trägt er doch Substanz und Geist,
    Nach Gesetz ins Ungefähre.
    Manchmal wünschte ich, ich wäre
    Derart erdentbunden
    Endlich abgereist.

    Könnte niemand mich umarmen.
    Könnte niemand mich vernichten.
    Doch ein Rauch kann wie Erbarmen
    Wunderfromm zum Himmel dichten.
