In Terra Pax

 

Heartbroken – listening to Mahler’s sixth –

the slow movement – a young man – nineteen years –

the progress of the melodies – transfixed –

my tears – a prison cell – the world – a sphere –

totality – it moved – a waterfall –

a childhood – past – today – eternity –

in terra pax – by solitude – enthralled –

a chord’s static immobility – in freedom

falls – yet holds its immobility –

I watch the stars – their silence – grief departs –

the sun descended long ago – foreseen –

what is – in darkness life – tonight – no art –

a tenderness – a heart that breaks – created –

loneliness – the timeless – contemplated.
