Stumbling, you can get far;

Only by falling and not rising, you can’t.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe



Flogged by the whips of the wind

for the rain and foul weather

crushed to dust

by the ravages of time


Stripped from the chance

of survival

again I resurrect

to fall




* * *

Seek the truth of the bright flame,

look for new, undiscovered roads!

Adam Asnyk



I took off my hat


said goodbye

to my Fatherland


I pushed the door handle


went away

to another plane


Of time and space


I touched the truth


Of existence



* * *

A tear is the most expensive pearl.

Søren Kierkegaard


Morning again

I wake up lethargic

with the word:

“I wish, I desire...”

And a chain of pearls

I put around the neck

Like a heavy tear

but one

I would take off


* * *


One moment

one breath

The last

issued with no echo

One is already everything

and nothing


and nowhere

A minuscule particle

of the Universe


Artur Komoter - Translation
