For a friend passed away

(Anna S., Serbia)

For a friend passed away
I woke up this morning
and heard a leaf falling.
it wasn`t yellow or gray
it was a leaf of green and life
and it did not fall to the ground.

It went climbing up to the sky.
to the land up yonder leaving
other leaves as they cry.

I feel like a tree
with one leaf short of life
One leaf gone – as if
the whole tree went up with it
right up into the sky.

It went falling up the Milky Way
Falling further up right into
our Father`s hands,
From whence the little green leaf came
Frome whence it came.

Grand guignol

╰⊰¸¸.•¨*

When you are in

the desert and

the closest railway station

is so far away …

When night falls

and darkness of your heart

with every grand guignol

grope you…

When you feel caged

in a deep cave

with steep ravine

into the depths of your heart,

into the depths of the earth …

Then God loving

with rope hanging in the void

And every grand guignol

converts in a

beautiful Grand Canyon …!

HEAVEN’S GROCERY STORE – POEM

ArticleImage_35512-jpg

Heaven’s Grocery Store

I was walking down life’s highway 
a long, long time ago.  
One day I saw a sign that read, 
“HEAVEN’S GROCERY STORE.”  
As I got a little closer, the door opened wide, 
and I found myself standing inside.

I saw a host of ANGELS. 
They were standing everywhere.  
One handed me a basket and said, 
“My Child, shop with care.”

Everything a human needed 
was in that grocery store.  
And if you couldn’t carry it all, 
you could come back the next day for more.  

First, I got some PATIENCE.  
LOVE was in the same row. 
Further down was UNDERSTANDING, 
you need that everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of WISDOM, 
a bag or two of FAITH.  
I just couldn’t miss the HOLY GHOST, 
for it was all over the place.

I stopped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE 
TO HELP ME RUN THIS RACE. 
By then my basket was getting full, 
but I remembered I needed some GRACE.

I didn’t forget SALVATION, 
for SALVATION was free.  
So I tried to get enough of that 
to save both you and me.  

Then I started up to the counter 
to pay my grocery bill. 
For I thought I had everything 
to do the MASTER’S will.

As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER; 
and I just had to put that in, 
for I knew when I stepped outside, 
I would run into sin.

PEACE and JOY were plentiful; 
they were last on the shelf.
SONG and PRAISE were hanging near, 
so I just helped myself.   

Then I said to the angel, 
“Now, how much do I owe?”

He smiled again and said,  “MY CHILD, 
JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.”
