i entered mysterious space – endless multidimensional maze
in the old city theater

with index finger on the wall i'm drawing blooming flowers
soft light they spread must be enough to see myself
and audience -

a lifelong team of double sixteen seated in pairs
dusty human size wooden chess pieces in chairs
retired solders and four majestic crowned heads
   all of them oozing so adorably with inborn pride
i observe

God knows: we were too serious
and overtired. who knows why but yes, not worthy Heaven

Destiny brought us together:
not for pleasure or entertainment. in truth, we desired
more than Heaven

longing for unseen Homeland we accepted thorns and tears
neither as punishment or condemnation nor as experiment


on the stage i appear - by chance and by choice
open to question then leaving all expectations
submissive to unwritten scenarios of soul*****let it be!
let it all happen!
