    Let the Sky be

    Let the sky be

    A road

    Let the road be

    A dream

    Let the dream be

    A flame

    Let the flame be sky again

    Let the sky now be a growing sky

    Let me be the Traveller coming to meet it

    Again from the beginning the road

    The dream, the flame

    The night.

    Mother or the stopped time

    Slightly before she died, Mother looked at the clock on the wall,

    She waited and waited

    For the time of her death,

    But all the birds of the world

    Fell to the floor.

    The earth became ash,

    And the wind – Hera

    or the bride with no veil,

    who wanted to escape to beyond time,


    With my hands I dismissed all of the stars from the sky.

    My mother looked at the clock on the wall,

    The wall trembled:

    “Hold tight mother”!
