Music of the Word
Beautiful is the world
painted with the music of the word.
a butterfly passing by,
who for a moment
intoxicates with the colouring of its body,
the breath of those thirsty for beauty.
Its sensual dance
is freedom of imagination.
And the word?
The word can be
the music
that can be heard
when it is quiet,
and yet silent.
Gardens of Silence
In the gardens of silence
the words sound silence.
Those longing, desiring
do not whisper even from afar
It’s good that they scream within it.
Maybe it heard them before,
maybe it dreamed about them before?
Where is life?
Where the love is?
Or maybe
the hate is?
I know –
breath is the life.
Trees also breathe,
though they cannot love.
And people…?
