Thread of Life

By Eduard Schmidt-Zorner

I tie the Ariadne’s thread
into my wide-meshed cardial net,
where points of view dissolve
and deep thoughts evolve.

Lead him past the rubble heaps
where longing grows
and stockpiled
are forgotten things.

Bind him where the swallows fly
and fix him near heaven’s dome
where clouds rush by
and seagulls are at home.
