Afloat in the Sad, Soft Void of Eternity

The Wind carries me to the sky

and leads me across the billowing cloud-meadows

onto the ink-blue stage of night.

As we stand in the centre,

the quiet celestial music starts to play

and millions upon millions of stars light up at the same time.

Helplessly I quiver in his cold, blue hands

as we twirl and twirl

ever faster

until the whole Universe is a maddening blur

of spinning stars and moons, of blazing suns and planets.

Finally, a swirling galaxy gobbles me up and



I become ever smaller

until I’m just a tiny speck floating

in the sad, soft void of Eternity.

    Masterpiece for certain, but… ne vem, meni bi bila zagotovo bolj všeč, če bi izvenela bolj optimistično. Pa mogoče kakšna druga, v trenutkih, ko bodo zvezde postavljene bolj ugodno 🙂
