ECHO

suspended silent
between this world and the next
my soul knows
the breeze of the other
the moonlit hall where
the heart walks alone

but descending
struggles with the laughter
wings beating against
the hot landscape the language
unknown
faces with motivation unrevealed
who press in the boiling
prison shouts and tears
unbending

thus suspended my soul
longs for journey’s end
sings its song of silence
ballads of yearning
for the dance
where the smile
conceals nothing
and the body
like a bird
is free
