Then room spaced out and spaces became less


With dazzling light and with a warm caress
the land was yours, surrounding you with love,
when, in a final act, the sun goddess
filled the entire mountain range above
only dispersed by the vast squandering sea.

Then room spaced out and spaces became less
around you and the town, above the trees,
above the mountains where grew emptiness.

Also your life had changed, the colour-dance
had lifted, risen, filled the empty spaces
until it met the dark and edged out traces
of night with the reality of stars
offering resistance in a cool white glance.
