Present is lightning

April 3/2006


The lasso vibrates

as it unites

heaven with earth


and this sound

of the light

it is only an echo,

agonizing vestige

of the angel

already fallen



the obscure cloud spills

and another comes



the river flow increases

so that it is never the same…


Present is lightning

past is thunder

life is this rain

that eventually ceases.
