THE SILNCE BEFORE SPRING / Poem by Joanna Svensson

Poem by Joanna Svensson

 

THE SILNCE BEFORE SPRING

Sometimes I just need silence
To hear the voice of my heart
I don’t want to see
nor hear nothing else

I just want to feel
My inner feelings
I just want to hear
My inner voice

Feel secure
Between heaven and earth
Feel the earth
Pulsating of life

Life that slowly awakens
Awakens after a long winters cold

Then I feel
In the inner of me
The beginning of a new spring
For spring is the beginning
Of all new life!

When spring comes, I feel
Like the old cherry tree in my garden
The tree that will bloom
With magical clusters of flowers
Never contemplating
Nor considering
Its age

I need silence to remember
To remember who I am
I need to feel that I belong to the Universe
That I am part of the great nature

Nature who’s given me security
Nature who’s given me love
Nature who’s always loved me
Loved me for the one I am

I just want to hear
My inner me
Feel secure
Between heaven and earth

And I need the silence now and then
‘Way from the dreadful noise of reality
The turmoil that elbows out
All wonderous words of beauty
That strangles all creative thoughts

So in order to survive
Survive as a human being
In order to survive
Survive as a poet

I sometimes crave the silence
To hear the inner voice
To feel the silent beatings
The beatings of my heart!
