Today's anniversary: Wislawa Szymborska

Wislawa Szymborska

A Few Words on the Soul

We have a soul at times.
No one’s got it non-stop,
for keeps.

Day after day,
year after year
may pass without it.

Sometimes
it will settle for awhile
only in childhood’s fears and raptures.
Sometimes only in astonishment

It rarely lends a hand
in uphill tasks,
like moving furniture,
or lifting luggage,
or going miles in shoes that pinch.

Wings

to Constantin Brâncuşi

The bird of time
unfolds in the song of the chisel,
rotates in the light of stone stars,
renouncing his stillness:

Look at the sky, the sky is alive!

It has wings in the name of the one who shaped them.

The artist

God is the artist who makes the world present
between the buds of colors,
in the heart of the moments,
in the wood of the forests.
His expression,
it is the spark rising from the dust
like a miracle without clothes
in the heart of every mortal - The Love.
