INDICATION


When I gather together in my naked arms  
the broken fragments of my life  
the immense devil of darkness  
mocks at me.  

And yet someone whispers  
(Is it only the voice of the empty dark ?) :  
For you no quiet moment  
no rest, no sweet sleep.  
The stubborn song of life invites  
to arise and lift  
the unvanquished sword.
