on the rim of vast silence

 

Has my heart gone to sleep?

Have the beehives of my dreams

stopped working, the waterwheel

of the mind run dry,

scoops turning empty,

only shadows inside?

 

No, my heart is not asleep.

It is awake, wide awake.

Not asleep, not dreaming

its eyes are opened wide

watching distant signals, listening

on the rim of vast silence.

Antonio Machado
