erlebt, ehrlich wahr

there’s not a real relation apart from the fact that she’s writing on the moon four days after the day i was born. apart from that there’s just a connecting beauty. read this one.

KAZUKO SHIRAISHI

SUMMER TIME – THE FULL MOON FOUR DAYS AFTER JULY 27TH
my mother silently went to heaven      four days ago
and tonight      is the full moon
my mother quietly completed her work
the last penance called living
when she breathed in and exhaled      as though teaching
as far back as to the Inca Empire
the thin river of her life
trembled like a thread

now everything is fine
she is                 happier than the moon         she does not have to wander about
among the dark clouds

she does not have to                     shine serenely
and slowly leave
she has obtained        the permanence
of her existence by not existing             ah
I forgot to say, thank you           because your leaving
this world was         too soon         and too quiet a sigh

what is called permanence is         transient
because it only exists inside me
in this finite inside
infinity        that is a permanence is      now
floating

ah                full moon
please shine
on my beloved                      my mother
please flutter
like a spring breeze
quietly over the repose of her soul
like
drops of light
