Dawn

Slowly
as a poem writes itself
daybreak comes
from nothing into being

disposes of silence
and brings light

everywhere arises green
victuals for the sun

which from the earth
no other darkness removes

but the night.

From: “Counterlight”

Eagle
The ravens fly in swarms
the eagle flies alone
Luchino Visconti

So close to heaven
flies the eagle
lonely
as the poet

who patiently waits
the arrival of a verse

till the pen
scratches finally a few a few lines

still doubting
the sense

the idleness
of naming.

From “In the Stream of time, Meditations in the Himalayas”

SEARCHING FOR LIGHT

To Hugo Mujica

Although the roots
searching for water
embrace each other

and the branches
searching for light
draw apart

the branches
will encounter the light
but the roots
nothing but darkness.
