THE CALL

Janri Gogeshvili

 THE CALL

 To the astral image

 It can’t caress and fondle you at present,

It is locked up in the bodily prison.

If only it gathered its strength,

And made you share its reasons!

 

It needs a miracle for your sake,

For your sake, it needs alteration.

At times, we turn into clowns

Abating our wild passions.

 

But now, it doesn’t care for that,

It refuses to suspect and think

That you cherished someone’s desire,

That you satisfied someone’s thirst.

 

It needs a miracle for your sake,

For your sake, the ardor it needs.

Time flies and years assault us,

But the heart! The heart never yields!

 

It needs a marvel for your sake,

For your sake, it needs alterations…

For your sake, it grows more adaptable,

The astral body can cross the oceans…

 

Believe me, it’ll come, it’ll fondle you

With a dreamlike flutter in the air,

To heal your exhausted spirit,

And support you with tender care.

 

It needs a wonder for your sake,

For your sake, it needs alteration.

For the hearts “which near each other move”

Breath bears breath and expectation.
