Translated with (free version)
hear the cry
of the earth
and feel each grain
between the fingers.
– resting against the root
of the dead tree –
under the sole
the stones
nibble the silences.
metal ground
grains of dust
and rust
– to say goodbye
under an autumn dawn –
in the back
of the moon
the reflection of our ancestors.
darkness –
on every moonless night
I watch over the shadow
of the old tree.
the bark splits
a corner of the earth.
the heavy silence
of an ancient time
threatens my breathing.
– the blaze of absence –
