ruins

doors have fallen off their hinges and there are no windows
the air is always fresh pleasant
a precise and unexpected beauty
can be found in such a house a leaning tree
perhaps a mulberry a linden or a walnut
this beauty is not for anything or
anybody the streaks of sunlight caress
those who on mornings walk into these rooms
empty and the floors composed of
patterns of ivy and other weeds
a precise and unexpected freedom
can be found in such a house within you
peace

Translated by Jernej Županič

ruševine

vrata so se snela z okov in ni več oken
zrak je vedno svež prijeten 
natančna in nepričakovana lepota 
je lahko v taki hiši v poševnem drevesu 
morda murva ali lipa ali oreh 
ta lepota ni za nič in za 
nikogar prameni svetlobe božajo 
tistega ki vstopa ob jutrih v sobe 
prazne in tla sestavljena 
iz vzorcev bršljana in plevela 
natančna in nepričakovana svoboda 
je lahko v taki hiši v tebi 
mir
