Awaiting (ציפייה) – Poem by Shoshana Vegh / Translated into English by Miriam Chalik

 

Poem by  Shoshana Vegh


Awaiting

The earth is turning
A living furnace
Tears and blood
And she is in her world
Imagining him
Breaking through fences

A woman
A bandit
In a war
And now she writes
In the water
With her tears
Waiting for him

 

ציפייה

הָאֲדָמָה מִתְהַפֶּכֶת
כִּבְשַׁן חַי
דְּמָעוֹת וָדָם
וְהִיא בְּעוֹלָמָהּ
מְדַמְיֶנֶת אוֹתוֹ
פּוֹרֵץ גְּדֵרוֹת

אִשָּׁה
שׁוֹדֶדֶת
בַּמִּלְחָמָה
וְעַכְשָׁו הִיא כּוֹתֶבֶת
בְּמַיִם
בְּדִמְעוֹתֶיהָ
מְחַכָּה לוֹ

שושנה ויג
