Image and poem by Oleg Yuzefpolsky
From the collection “Forever-Instance”
I’m here. Truly here. On Earth of Heaven.
I was driving through the sunset, when, suddenly,
I lost the feeling of time.
I just knew that the endless sky
was connected to this beautiful earth through my heart.
I just saw every particle pulsating with Life.
Time and space reunited in the primordial breathing,
that pure, deep, uninterrupted breathing –
the way lovers do when they are inside each other.
Wherever i looked, there it was – Earth of Heaven.
Sunlight caressed the valley – it was a gentle evening touch.
The car turned the curve of a mountain road
