waters also burn, like sand – elegy to norway from the middle east

July 23, 2011

Lands of sand always cry
for the love of water
water purifies you
water soothes you
water makes you
for this we cry in the lands of sand
to cool our hearths and aching mouths

Lands of sand always cry
for the love of tree
you hide in their shade
you crawl in their bed
you die in their nest
for this we cry in the lands of sand
to make our ties with the eternal world.

When do lands of waters cry
and the lands of trees?
where to turn when they too deny you?
waters run dark
trees only witness
and you are naked like many in the lands of sand
waters and trees become sand

and sadness reigns

when waters also burn
trees also hush
look at the wholeness and wait in silence
the wholeness will soothe you
the wholeness will show you

unite the sand and the waters and the trees
for the love of wholeness
and fight together
work together
see together
you are no different when your heart aches
let your waters cool the sand
let their sand dry your hands
let trees cover all
and wait together
