RETURN / Poem by Ibrahim Honjo

Poem by Ibrahim Honjo

 

RETURN

The mountain wrapped in fog

Wet with rain and dew

Gives confidence

It seems there begins a lifetime

I am returning to stone dens

From which

Moist sunny mornings

And faith in sunny mornings

And hope and intoxicating strength

Of stoical endurance

Have been leaving for centuries

Ibrahim Honjo, From the book “Roots in the Stone”
