„the truth was a mirror in the hands of god.
It fell, and broke into pieces.
everybody took a piece of it,
and they looked at it
and thought they had the truth.“
the truth was a river
deep down in the mountain
whole and full, not broken, not slivered
but when it saw
the light of earth
it split into thousand streams
for everyone a glass to drink.
and they drank a glass and said i know
and they drank a second and said i‘ll rule
oh they just drank a drop of an ocean, those fools
and thought they had the truth, now for sure.
and they drank a third and thought they could take
from my mothers garden her sweet singing lake
fishes lived in there
few years ago
before they drank and thought they know.

Wow. Du schreibst wunderschön…
ajhh , danke! <3 es schreibt mich aber eher glaube ich manchmal 😉
mhm… ja! bitter und wahr und so unausweichlich
unausweichlich? hmm – vielleicht weicher werden, wasser teilen, spiegelstücke kleben und uns in ihnen selber sehen, in all den schatten all dem licht- unausweichlich ist das nicht 😉

maybe it could continue like that?: and they drank and drank
there bellies full
with water so poison,
that they poured
out of all vessels
grief so pure
and this, dear children
was the beginning of another future…..
yes they purged in a bowl
out of delicate glass
the water of the river that they drank too fast
and in the salty tears of their rivers soul
they found a mirror
and they were so disturbed that there fist hit hard
the delicate bowl out of transparent glass
and they stood there, praying this moment may pass
but slow and carefully, their lift one piece up.
they cut their chords with quiet effort,
they lift the piece to their eyes and above.
and oh! they see the sun shining through
and are gifted with a newborns view
in all it’s colours life is buzzing
the earth is speaking, the clouds are fuzzy
the children are playing, the horses around
the water is shared, we‘re kising the ground.
in all it’s colours life is dancing
in spirals and dresses, joy enhancing
the wood, the fire, family around
the water is shared, so truth can be found.
