HOW DO YOU KNOW?

How do you know when something is gone?
When does an entrance give way to departure?
When does "I love you" become something
confined inside a photo frame
or someone you knew once
on a cloudy day in a city cafe?

When does being young shift subtly and unexpectedly
into something unexplored and alien
to the self you remember?
When does spring turn and fall into winter?
Where were you when summer brushed
your lips and left a taste of strawberries and flowers?
When does a morning start?
When does night surrender and sleep?

How do you know when the life you endured
has shifted to your waking point?
At which moment does a small point of light
(which entered gently and unexpectedly)
become your compass and home?
How do you recognise the Truth that kissed you once
when you were silent?

How do you know when nothing more
is required
or possible
or wished?

Éva Borka





 

 

 

TODAY

Sometimes I forget the magic of everything.
What it is to wake in the night
and trust in the first light of morning.
To find joy in the absence of things
and hear the music of silence.

What it is to hold a small bird
its heart beating with mine.
That it lived was miraculous to me
that I could hold it, even more so.

Tomorrow, will dawn's song
be one we have written together
now, in this brief moment?
And is there not perhaps always
a new song when one life
touches another?

I watched you fly into the green ferns
and the cup of my hands
remembered your body
like a gift.

Éva Borka

 

 To see the world in a grain of sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

 William Blake
from Auguries of Innocence
