VOICE AT DAYBREAK
A tiny voice
From the shell
I hear,
Don’ t close
I am here,
Your voice
From time
Immemorial.
I am coming back
From timeless space,
Don’ t close
I am here
Better
You will hear
When I strongly
Touch your ear.
From timeless space
I am flying back
When the day
Breaks
NO WALLS ANY MORE
No walls has my room
Any more
With the window
In the middle
The building is here
Made of thoughts
Instead of walls
And the table
And the bed
And the pictures
And the silent hour
In this place
Without walls
Mother Mary
Above my head
With little Christ
In her arms
God has also
Been here before
But at this very moment
I can hear His presence
Since there are no walls
Any more
ONE SOUL
Once upon a time
In the period
Of no time
You and me
Used to be
One
It struck my mind
The very moment
I heard your soul
Singing out of mine
Hasn’ t it shouted yet?
Fly over
All this time
Of ours
Get back
To the hours
Before any time
Clearly, you’ ll hear
Out of one
Throat
You and me
Used to sing
Both.
