Saša Milivojev - A SLUMBER FIREFLY

Saša Milivojev 1986 (Serbia)



Stillness stillness stillness
Stillness stillness stillness
A candle burns softly
Vanishes
The ink from the quill
The moonlight calls
Seeping through the windows
Stillness eternal stillness
Walls uttering
Words
Soothing aches
I put out the candle with a tear
And followed the moonlight
To search for happiness
Through a dark forest
In a wrinkled slumber
I listen to the beasts
Breathing
A plough
I drag
My soul
Attacked by them fiercely
And when a cloud covers the moon
A firefly leads me on
Lighting the way
The slumber never to end
