Rainy days and rainbows... [A Wave Outside the Sea]

    

The martyr couldn't believe his eyes

when his tomb was bombed

as he braided a garland for his beloved—

a red garland,

yet...on the way to heaven...

it turned white.

He bent toward the water with a small rainbow clutched in his hand.

 

In this way he makes music.

He lifts is hands to the clouds and braids her tears into a flower.

In this way he sings.

 

A wave breaking outside the sea.

In this way I go on.
