The blackness of this moment this lake this boat these two cut-paper people;
The trees where do they go for a drink
The shadow of them covers a whole lot, of this states or is it the whole country.
The water flowers dancing to the waves compose by the boat
The leaves of them not so attractive round and flat but a great companion to confess
The stars that emit from them are signs of no-hurry full of advices dark.
In the fishes in us, the spirit of blackness lies
Oar is shaking up the world that lies under the breath, cold and pale
Painting out a snag in the blackness lifting a valedictory, pale hand.
The lilies that lie around drawing the bank of the river and creating
the whispers the whispers that are sirens, expressionless ones
This is the silence of astounded souls.
