NORWAY | Thursday, 24 July 2008 | Views [702]

As you return from a lake

where every now and then

- like every month -

a man comes and says

"I like this nature here,

please let me stay

for some

time in harmony,

lightly touching the ground,

humming

"Don't be afraid, all is grace."

You are full of hope.

And as you

see the eyes

of the one you

were with

you realize

all the beauty

that is possible or not.

Your feet

get pinched by the pebble,

you hear them humming

"Don't be afraid all is full of grace."

Finally

on the last day

you catch a fish

- and kill it.

Dead and life are one

Seven circles radiate

in the lake that you obsevere

in a sudden symphony,

lightly humming

"Don't be afraid, all is full of grace"

And as you sit by the fire

you hear the one you're with

lightly humming

"Don't be afraid, all is full of grace"

The fish that you grill

on a long wooden stick

stretches its fins

as in sheer bliss.

With a happy tommy

you sit there:
All you can ever do

is thank for all the grace

that is given to you -

for free?

Thank you.
