Noli me tangere …

I am blind to everything

but the blurred threads

of your garment ..

I kneel.

I bow my head.

I incline my soul.

I feel your sorrow,

I weep,

I shudder,

mea culpa, mea culpa;

I am deaf to everything

but your eternal pulse.

I understand nothing

of this world

but the spirit of love

You breathe ..

You wait, Lord,

beyond the tomb,

beyond the pain,

beyond the fear,

to hear the footsteps

of the fallen

follow, penitent, in Yours … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
