Eeva Kilpi, “June”

KESÄKUU

Linnut kylpevät minussa,
sudenkorennot risteilevät ylläni,
hirvet juovat minua.

Olen auerta.
Olen hämärää.
Olen pilvi jonka lampi hengittää syliinsä.

Olen haihtumaisillani.

Sada minut alas, ihminen.

JUNE

Birds bask in me,
dragonflies cruise over me,
moose drink me.

I am haze.
I am twilight.
I am a cloud the pond breathes into its embrace.

I am on the verge of fading away.

Get me down, human.
