Quotes about respiration

Marin Sorescu

The Scribe

I'm being visited more and more seldom
By respiration.
I can't breathe anymore -so I can't write therefore, I live no more.

And here I ask:
The portion of my air I did not breathe
(Since I was gone before the deadline)
Is it worth anything?
At least it could be given to the poor
(If this were possible)
But this is such an absurd parsimony
Of Nothingness.

And further on:
The thoughts I left unwritten
By whom will they be finished? Since grains of sand are not alike
How could a new pen different from mine
Resume the thread exactly from the point I ceased?

And I had just discovered

Mason

It is but natural
to commit crime.
It is but natural
to get punished.

There are commission
and ommission
and you my mason
make all correction.

That I can take
free respiration
in this temple of
devotion.

Lorbardo

Lorbardo, Queen of the Dwarves is dying. She has passed away from disease.
She’s hardly a century old. To the sad dwarves this really means apologies.
Too many voices lament as the shuddering queen has stopped respiration.
The grieving is immense. The age of Lorbardo has been complete aggression.

Sleepless Symphony

The rain fell steady on the roof
While I lay awake next to her.
Her slumbered sounds while fast asleep
Had scored a midnight symphony:
Each dropp of rain from heaven fell
Made sounds like strings on violins
Each tightly strung and singly tuned
Awaiting for the slightest cue.
A flash, then thunder from the clouds
Commenced the orchestrally sounds
Of euphonic respiration's
And the strings of condensation
Played for an audience of one:
Dreamy arrangements envisioned.

Divine Help

Forgetting the names of humans

Shall intertwine and cause exits
And entries inside the circuits of blood.
These liquid circuits contain new oxygen
To bleed into our souls,
We breath this.

Have you forgotten my name?
I am your pleasant news today,
I am a well-worn sweater
Or someone's doctor.

Let the blood alert us to displeasure
Expressed by the Lord.
We must never enter a loop,
We must finish respiration
And death shall be our helper,
The angels can consider
But always with an obedient
