What has not shadow has no strength to live

Faith is in you whenever you look
At a dewdropp or a floating leaf
And know that they are because they have to be.
Even if you close your eyes and dream up things
The world will remain as it has always been
And the leaf will be carried by the waters of the river.

You have faith also when you hurt your foot
Against a sharp rock and you know
That rocks are there to hurt our feet.
See the long shadow that is cast by the tree?
We and trees throw shadows on the earth.
What has not shadow has no strength to live.

FAITH, n. Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel.

Srebro in mah

Poslušaj, mi je rekla. Smrtno tih porod, v katerem

bom rodila nekaj, kar je več od mene. Pripravi se na
veter z juga, od katerega lahko zboliš, pripravi se
na brezoblični hrup strasti, ljubezni, zahtevnih pesmi,grehov.

Doumel boš: brez mene ne boš prišel v antologijo
svetlobnih lis. Če ne bi srečal mene, ne bi srečal nikogar
drugega. Lahko, da ti zaradi tega zastaja dih. Ampak: ali
je zato kaj drugače?

Opisujem te s toplino v glasu,  udikadar govorim povsem potiho.

Ker ti utripaš z mojim srcem.

Ker ti po žilah teče moj nasmeh. In podoba, ki bo šla
s teboj čez ocean, bo napolnjena z menoj. To, kar me presega,
sva midva, najin mah, srebro, ranljivost, dolgo potovanje.
